Michelle Smith is an inspiration to Itchen's students. She has an aspirational vision for inclusivity in the arts. Her industry links and engaging workshops will offer all performing artists access to various art forms. We look forwards to working with Michelle and Theatre For Life in the future. I cannot praise her work ethic and her skill set strongly enough.
