Michèle Taylor has been appointed MBE for services to Theatre and People with Disabilities as part of the New Year’s Honours list.
Michèle works as Director for Change for Ramps On The Moon, the Arts Council-funded consortium aiming to change the theatre sector by bringing more Deaf and disabled people into the sector and making them more visible.
She has more than 25 years experience working in arts and heritage, focusing particularly on disability issues, and a background in professional theatre having performed in, written and directed shows for all ages (credits include work with Graeae and Roundabout Theatre Companies). She is therefore well-placed to support the seven partner organisations to embed sustainable change and to disseminate their learning so that the wider theatre sector can benefit.
On recently collecting her award, Michèle said, “It was so exciting to be at Windsor Castle to celebrate the work we’re doing at Ramps on the Moon. I was delighted by the whole event – serious and ridiculous in equal measure!”
From everyone at the New Wolsey Theatre, congratulations Michèle, this is hugely deserved!
