Sounding Board Member

Hiya, I’m Charlene.

I’m a Mum of three wonderful children, and currently a Project Officer for the creative team based at Llanrumney Hall Community Trust. I love all things nature, art, music, poetry and also a massive lover of all things vintage. I’m also a daydreamer and observer. I’m a proud Cardiffian born and bred, never leaving the East of Cardiff as that’s where my heart is. I am passionate about people, inclusion and living as authentically as possible. I also believe we can change people’s outcomes when self belief and confidence is instilled and an outlet of freedom of expression is available. I will always root for the underdog. Common Wealth Theatre are incorporating creativity whilst embracing diversity within our community, which is everything I am about, and I look forward to being part of the Sounding Board to offer everything I can for the direct benefit of my Community.
