Tassos Stevens @tassosstevens is director of Coney @agencyofconey - a charity making all kinds of play to spark change, following principles of adventure, curiosity and loveliness - and a maker sometimes on its projects, most often wearing hats including interactive dramaturg, game designer, writer, director, facilitator. Projects for Coney include: the BAFTA-winning Nightmare High for Channel 4 Education, an online resource for young people about big life changes; Telephone, a storytelling performance about connection for remote audiences over zoom; Incognito Society, a remote piece with UCL Culture, for connecting students with collections and each other; A Research Adventure, an interactive workshop about resilience in the process of a doctorate and early career research. He's also worked as a theatre director, undergraduate tutor, and cook. Half his life ago, he completed a PhD in Psychology at UCL and the MRC Cognitive Development Unit, working with people with Williams syndrome - it’s lovely to be back.
