Sara Crane

Chair

Sara originally qualified as an infant primary teacher, she taught dance and drama at Children’s Theatre for many years, she has worked as a presenter at TVNZ, ran a fireworks business and started a community agency. Her theatre background includes the improvised and community-focused form called Playback Theatre. She is currently the Director of Training of Psychodrama for the CITP in Christchurch and Dunedin and is a Registered Psychotherapist. She continues to be involved in the building of many Christchurch communities.

Sara believes that Gap Filler is a significant and potent force in the realm of people making. She brings her experience of community, creative events and team building to this role. Sara is from Ulster and has experienced the rebirth of a bombed and broken city to a stunning and vital desirable destination. 

What Sara loves most about Gap Filler is seeing the delight and connections that projects ignite in participants. She enjoys participating herself and being surprised by the unexpected ripples of relationships that happen.  She particularly sees this in Gap Filler’s Soup and sees the potential for this format everywhere there are people and creativity.
