Suchawadee Phetpanomporn (Cherie)
Suchawadee (Cherie) is an actress, an Applied Theatre practitioner and acting trainer. Since 2007, she has been working with various groups of young people such as HIV-infected children, youngsters who experienced abuse, children with learning difficulties, and young refugees and asylum seekers. Working with groups of young people in London during her Master's programme at Goldsmith College and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, she acquired hands-on experience in creating safe spaces for inclusive learning and in establishing cohesive communities through the theatrical process. This inspires her to explore how to apply a body-mind approach to groom young Thai learners' critical thinking and equip them with positive mindsets. This helps liberate them from the dominance of passive learning at schools and submissive behaviors from their family environment . To eliminate the fear that blocks their body and mind through, safe learning space is her priority. Thus, they will be a new generation that establishes a new cohesive community where difference is valuable and beautiful.
