Maryam and Catrin first worked together when they created The Chronicles of Irania, which Maryam co-wrote and performed in. As well as the community work that they developed together alongside the show, Maryam has been integral to all the work A Moment’s Peace has been doing around food. She developed the original plans for I Could Eat A Horse, and co-led the research and development work we did on the project in 2012.
Maryam’s play, The Builders, was read as part of Border Control 2012 and 2013.
Maryam is interested in storytelling and the mythology of diasporic voices, especially in women.
She was excited to continue her relationship with AMP as an Artistic Associate after taking time out to have her first child.
Jodie joined A Moment’s Peace in Summer 2013 as Project Manager for I Could Eat A Horse. Her excellent management on this ambitious national project led to our team of artists and groups creating some very exciting and challenging work.
Jodie was recently appointed the new Creative Learning Officer at The Arches. We are delighted because it’s an exciting opportunity, but it also means we will continue working with her through our partnership with The Arches on Endurance.
