Playground | Be You

Do you make time for play?

It’s easy to get caught up with things we have to do rather than things we want to do. It’s easy to worry about outcomes rather than delighting in the process. It’s easy to neglect things that capture our imagination because we tell ourselves we’re not skilled enough, fit enough, smart enough, good enough… but we don’t have to let those things stop us from playing. Play is about experience. Play is about being alive. Play is about us. And we ARE enough.

About Me

Hi, I’m Jaya. I’m a creative artist, coach, and devoted dog mum. I’m fuelled by kindness, curiosity and playfulness. I’m a lifelong learner with an arts degree, two law degrees, and I’m on my way to earning a qualification in counselling. After dabbling in work with corporations, NGOs, government bodies, and independent arts groups, I set up my own theatre practice in 2015. Through the work of creating independent theatre shows, training actors and enthusiasts, and being open to letting life happen, I found home among other curious and playful lifelong learners. Playground is where we come together to be ourselves and belong.

Let’s connect

I live and work on the traditional land of the people of the Kulin Nation. I pay my respect to the Elders of these traditional lands and to all First Nations people, past and present.
