The Possibility Club

The future of creative opportunity

I DON’T BELIEVE IN TALENT AT ALL. FOR ALL WE KNOW WE ARE ALL MOZARTS, BUT MOST PEOPLE DON’T HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO FIND OUT.

Richard Freeman’s special guest this week is Stella Duffy OBE.

Stella is many things. A multi-award winning author of 16 novels, spanning both literary and crime fiction, over 60 short stories and 10 plays, which have been performed at The Bush Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, and Lyric Hammersmith amongst many others.

She is a comedy improviser, theatre director, screen actress and documentary film-maker.

In 2016, Stella as awarded an OBE for services to the arts.

For the past 4 years, Stella has been one of the driving forces behind Fun Palaces, a massive UK-wide celebration of culture, making, science, heritage and community that takes place every October.

Richard and Stella spoke in mid May 2018, chatting about what makes a Fun Palace work, childhood, inclusion, class, opportunity, risk and creativity.
