Keziah Berelson – Studio of Sanctuary Project Coordinator
I am a French and Arabic speaker I am a massive foodie and love cooking, eating and talking about food. My two cats, Pease Pudding and Kugel are named after popular Geordie and Ashkenazi dishes. I love knitting, especially socks! I am a triple taurus.
I have worked in frontline refugee support in Leeds and saw the impact of the arts for new communities, in their confidence and English skills and co-founded Mafwa Theatre, a theatre company that works with refugees, asylum seekers and settled Leeds communities. Working at the Art House means that I can deliver similar work in a different context and art form. The Art House is a really fun and welcoming space to work that enables me, as someone with a chronic illness, to feel safe and able to reach my full potential.
