Katie is an experienced educator and facilitator and has devised and directed numerous participatory projects during her time as Associate Director for Pilot Theatre. She has worked extensively with Pilot Theatre’s European partner organisations, creating four new plays for young people produced as part of the European Project Platform 11+. This Pan-European initiative involved twelve companies across eleven countries, coming together with the express purpose of creating art that transcended language and concentrated on universal storytelling. She has always supported her professional productions with Creative Engagement projects and has also directed large scale community shows for Pilot and York Theatre Royal.

Below is a creative engagement project linked to Pilot Theatre's tour of Brighton Rock, exploring the creative response of students from St Mary’s College, Hull.


She is also a qualified educator having course-led Drama and Theatre Studies A-Level and has collaboratively written two BTEC study guides which are used nationally by schools and colleges. 

She is currently running Masterclasses for Arts Ed Drama School
