Juanita Rea 

Interdisciplinary Artist/Activist 

& Community Arts Leader

I am passionate about destigmatising childhood sexual trauma & mental disorders, which I've experienced, through visual art, spoken word, storytelling, music & performance. I have facilitated customised, therapeutic yoga, mindfulness & arts programmes at schools, workplaces & private residences in 12 countries with 16,000 people affected by everyday stress, personal & collective traumas. www.edusoil.com 

I address racism, the global mental health crisis and inequity through the innovation of AI-driven, culturally responsive, gamified and personalised digital platforms, integrating counselling and the arts for children and adults. With 21 years of global experience in education, wellbeing, arts and social development sectors, I offer worldwide virtual services and on-site performances and programmes in Northern Ireland.
