Experience

I have a lot of experience facilitating philosophy. Here are some of the organisations and groups I have worked with.

Royal Institute of Philosophy

I am receiving funding from the Royal Institute of Philosophy to run a ten-week philosophy course with St. Swithun's school, Winchester. I am running this course in relationship with The Philosophy Foundation, who connected me with St. Swithun's. The course focuses on the philosophy of mental illness and the use of philosophy as

therapy.

SLT Philosophy Forum

The Stuart Low Trust Philosophy Forum has been running for about ten years, and I have been involved for over three. The Forum is a weekly discussion group aimed at isolated adults in Islington, London. This is the group that got me into community philosophy. I learned to facilitate philosophical conversations with the Forum, and more recently I have played a key part in organising and administering the Forum's activities.

The Philosophy Foundation

The Philosophy Foundation primarily runs philosophical enquiries for schoolchildren. I am a trained philosophy specialist with the Foundation and have worked with primary schools, secondary schools, and home-educated children. I have also helped to organise Foundation events such as the Happy Prisoner Festival.

Shelter From The Storm

With other members of the Stuart Low Trust Philosophy Forum, I helped provide philosophy sessions at Shelter From The Storm in 2018. This is a homeless shelter in North London. I gave presentations and facilitated philosophical enquiries over a ten week course.

Philosophy in the Park

In 2018, I organised a public philosophy event in Regent's Park, London. This was advertised in Time Out magazine and attracted over forty participants. I gave a two-part presentation on ideas of the self in Buddhist philosophy and the thought of David Hume. Volunteer facilitators ran small-group discussions tackling the questions I posed.
