Trudi Boatwright

Faculty and Affiliate

Tru­di is a con­coc­tion of play, design, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion work­ing as a facil­i­ta­tor and expe­ri­en­tial design­er from Mel­bourne, Australia.

With a rich 20 year his­to­ry in the arts, she is a the­atre mak­er, actor, pro­duc­er, and direc­tor and spe­cial­izes in work­ing beyond the fourth wall through role-play and immer­sive the­atre. As an arts prac­ti­tion­er, she has per­formed on the West End, toured shows through Europe, and found­ed the­atre com­pa­nies in both Lon­don and Australia.

Her innate curios­i­ty for human behav­ior led her towards facil­i­ta­tion and she now spe­cial­izes in work­shops that revolve around cre­ative think­ing and play. Cer­ti­fied with the Insti­tute for Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing, she rev­els in com­bin­ing arts, the expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing cycle, the sci­ence of play, and design think­ing through her Mas­ters of Design Futures at RMIT University.

Her work­shops and cours­es deliv­ered online and in per­son, con­tain an active, expe­ri­en­tial ele­ment and she has immersed her­self in hun­dreds of busi­ness­es to pro­vide them with cul­tur­al­ly suit­ed cre­ative solu­tions that embrace life­long learn­ing. She has worked in man­u­fac­tur­ing, con­ser­va­tion, insur­ance, and emer­gency ser­vices and can attest that cre­ativ­i­ty and com­mu­ni­ca­tion are skills need­ed across all industries.

She pas­sion­ate­ly believes that cre­ativ­i­ty is vital for the evo­lu­tion of the species and that life­long learn­ing is essen­tial for a rich ful­fill­ing jour­ney. Some of her career high­lights include con­duct­ing an orches­tra, hold­ing a lun­cheon at the House of Lords, and mak­ing her own didgeridoo.
