Vikki Parker is the Founder and Creative Director of Arts Unwritten, a theatre company for kids and teens that specialises in devising and making original theatre from scratch. As a child she trained in acting and dance, and immersed herself in creative writing and painting. As an adult she studied Psychology, Theatre & Performance, the Therapeutic Application of the Arts in Education and Secondary Drama Teaching. After an early career as a model and extensive experience as an actor / dancer she taught Drama in schools for 15 years across an age range of 5-18, until she decided to put all her passion, knowledge and conviction into setting up her Theatre Company to celebrate the holistic development potential of the individual through the Arts. She decided to come out of the shadows in defiance of an education system that seeks to belittle the importance of the growth of the person as a whole, a system that has chosen to reduce the Arts to a pitiful skeleton of its former worth. She runs weekly theatre workshops in Brighton, UK as a direct antidote to the testing / tick box culture of children’s academic lives today.

As a thriver–oriented survivor of a dysfunctional and emotionally unsafe family she credits the Arts as her saving grace and her only means of expressing her true self albeit through symbolic representation and the characters she played. The authentic truth of a person’s creative voice is at the heart of her work. The process, analysis and celebration of human dynamics and connection through theatre and the arts is her oxygen. In her workshops she endeavours to hold the space for that creative enquiry and honours the individual’s profound need to be seen and heard.

 ‘Every time I paint, act, dance, write poetry or sing Jazz, I express a part of myself that was hidden until that moment. I give it flight. I give it freedom. I give myself the space to be fully and unashamedly myself and I allow that to be witnessed, shared and celebrated. I want the same for all the people I teach.’ Vikki.

There are so many ways we can learn to express and empower ourselves so that we may be the best version of who we are. So we can show up in the world fully present and ask for what we need, and be able to help others with what they need. Everyone has their own journey, but we are all interconnected. Theatre allows us to rehearse, witness and consider that process. It allows us to feel our way back to ourselves. The Arts communicate a common story between us all. In conscious awareness she has chosen this unknown and uncertain path of developing her own life, her own creativity and her own permission to be herself.

She writes, paints and sings Jazz, practises yoga and meditation and is committed to the journey of healing childhood and generational trauma through holistic and energy therapies and art forms.

If this moment, this conversation, is about considering champions, then being a champion for your creative and emotional self is her wish for you all.

Arts Unwritten is a new venture with wild visions. We achieve little by playing small.

Vikki is especially interested in starting a conversation about the use of the Arts for personal development and would welcome personal stories about how theatre has affected your life. Let’s keep the connection going.

My name is P.J. Dixon and—despite my disability—I’ve lived a better life than most able-bodied people!

I've spent virtually my entire life living by Henry Ford's philosophy, "If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right."  Despite being diagnosed with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy that was expected to take my life by seven, I was encouraged to experience life to the fullest and do anything and everything I wanted; and, as a result of that attitude, . . . here I stand [pardon the pun], . . . 38 years later!

Snow Skier, Skydiver, Amateur Water Colorist, Former Wheelchair Athlete, 10th Degree Black Belt, Women's Self-Defense Instructor, International Traveler, Published Author, Motivational Speaker, Success Strategist, and Self-Professed Advocate of Love!

I wanted to say “Love Guru,” but I thought that was a bit presumptuous [wink].  Why Love?  Honestly because I Love Love!  And, really, because I feel it’s part of my calling.

Without waxing religious—and unintentionally running people off—at 28, I had just moved to Tucson, without a job, and was praying for some wisdom about what I should do with my life.  I then opened myself up, in hopes of receiving some direction, and a beam of golden light came through the ceiling, hit me in the top of my head, filled me completely up, and I heard one word — Love!

True story!  At that moment, I knew no matter what I chose to do with my life, it wouldn’t matter, as long as I allowed Love to be my guiding light.

Since that time, I’ve spent a significant amount of time studying Love and all of it’s many facets; and, although, I’m prone to error, like everyone else—I’ve learned a lot about love and how it can profoundly influence the life of a person and any relationship it enters.

Every day, I consciously strive to positively impact the lives of every person I come in contact with—in a sincere effort to make the world a better place.  How do I do that?  By actively Loving others as much as I can and by teaching others . . . to do the same.

Peace, Love, and Persistence are my calling cards and the primary three principles I live by, which is why I’ve made these the foundations of my life, . . . and, hopefully, . . . you will too!

I help salespeople and entrepreneurs create an army of buyers who know, like and trust you BEFORE they’ve ever even met you.

I can help you build your personal brand, find your authentic voice and tell the tale of you because here’s the thing:

The story you tell the world changes your world.

I’ve worked with thousands of successful businesses offering proven strategies for making the cash register ring.

My book BETTER! Self Help For The Rest Of Us is an Amazon #1 Best Seller with glowing reviews from around the world thanking me for the understandable, actionable, life-changing ideas and stories. I’m a contributing writer for Forbes, The Good Men Project, and Dealer Marketing.

I have spoken to audiences from coast to coast at TedX, The National Association of Broadcasters, and the National Automobile Dealers Association.

I only take the stage to do two things: change lives and chew gum. And I’m all out of gum.

Some speakers like to brag that they train the trainers; well, I close the closers.

As the VP of Making Sh!t Happen for Instant Events Automotive Advertising, I’ve sold to the toughest negotiators in the world, car dealers, and produced the biggest, loudest, most attention grabbing ads in the history of big, loud, attention grabbing ads for dealerships from Moose Jaw to Miami, most of the time working from home in my underwear.

Born and raised in Nashville, TN, I hold a degree in English/Journalism from Tennessee Technological University, where I learned how to program ginormous room-sized computers using a deck of cards and a rubber band, and how to edit newspaper and radio ads using a ruler, a razor blade, and scotch tape. While all of that may make me sound MacGyver cool, it hasn’t come in handy much since graduation.

Along with Mary, my wife of 29 years, we are the proud parents of three daughters and I spend most of my free time, like every other middle-aged, overweight, native southerner, at the ice rink playing hockey.

I play many roles in my life; mother, friend, best-selling author, coach, mentor, and international speaker. I love to support business owners who suffer from overwhelm and stress to stop, listen and trust their intuition so that they can create more time, space and live guilt free. However, I consider myself to be an adventurer and a soul who loves to live effortlessly. I love to travel, and most of the time you will find me on a plane, experiencing what the world has to offer us. I have lived in 7 different countries; Switzerland, Chile, France, Germany, Spain, Bali, UK and speak 3 languages (Spanish, English and German) and gave birth to my beautiful son in Bali in October 2014. I would say my little one is my greatest teacher. He is so much fun and amazing soul, who reminds me of the essence of who we all really are, and keeps me grounded on a daily basis. Being a mum is one of the most rewarding and also challenging things that I have done, and I make sure that my lifestyle business fits around these two as they are the most important people in my life I love to ski and being in nature is the ultimate for me. My idea of a lifestyle that works for me is to be able to have a horizon I can look out on, whether it be an ocean or mountains.

Mar 3, 2017

I was born in the Usambara Mountains in Tanzania, where the African violet came from. I spent the first ten years of my life with my three sibling and parents in Moshi at the foothills of the Kilimanjaro. Growing up in that place and that time was very different from the western world. At age 10 we returned to Germany and looking back it was truly a culture shock, especially looking at the emotional side. I always have been interested in airplanes from early age and ended up getting involved with aviation as well.

My journey has taken me along an engineering route, visiting different places all around the world including Russia, many places in Europe, China, Africa and Nicaragua. I truly see myself as an earthling rather than as a African, German or American. Getting involved with model airplanes in my early teens and learning how to fly real airplanes as well is a passion. Another passion that have developed is dancing that to me is a language of it’s own, as there is no need for verbal communication when engaging in it. I had and continue to have great times and get to meet great people I get to know along the way. In 1999 I ended up here in Scappoose, OR where I worked for Oregon Aero for 17 years acquiring further knowledge and inspiration, preparing me for the next chapter in life.

I worked for 17 years as a research and Development engineer contributing in various ways to the company and society. My gift for being able to find new solutions to various challenges in the technical interface to the human body world led me to becoming very knowledgeable about body mechanics. Understanding how the body mechanics can influence people in their daily life, causing harm and pain as well as pleasure is a knowledge that is what I feel has become the gift that I need to bring to the people who are ready and need it.

Body, Mind and Spirit are inseparable in my world, so it takes deliberate intentions to move on in life at all three levels. Having said that, it begins with - that I am fully responsible for all outcomes in my life. My past actions and in-actions have created and continue to create my here and now. Yesterday can not be changed, so learn from it and forget about the rest. Future is tomorrow and I have no control over it either, so forget about it as well. Only the here and now counts as I move along in life.

My daily choices are therefore very important. I have not only choices in what I do but also I have a choice of how I value experiences as positive, indifferent or negative. The beliefs and rules that I built or accepted over the years are the limitations that I put on myself and are reflected in fears and habits. So fear tells me where to go and it is up to me to overcome them. Failure is my guidance system that leads me on the path of my success to achieve the best that I can be. When I have no fear from anything or anyone, then I have no limitations and I can do anything I desire.

I am finding clarity for my path to fulfill my true purpose to bring my gifts to those that need them. I want to get my business profitable to support my future endeavors and the ability to learn more and continue to expand on my knowledge. I want to share it through different modalities such as Internet through websites and webinars, as well as live events all around the world. I want to be able to support family and friends who are in need as well as support causes such as CAI (Central Asia Institute) who build schools to, as the first order educate girls in the third world.

Thanks for checking in with me.

"Caroline Southwell is best known for seeing what others miss and saying what others won't. She loves challenging the status quo through being an example of doing life differently. As an Australian coach, writer and speaker, she predominantly attracts women and men who are ready for a deeper conversation. Those who are done with "striving for success" and want to understand how to live a life that truly brings them joy (where success is a byproduct not the focus), love the kinds of conversations that Caroline brings.
 
Highlights in the last few years have been:
 
* Finding herself sweating and smiling on a dancefloor in Ubud, Bali surrounded by 150 people, in the middle of a massive rainstorm
 
* Watching an article she'd written (about responding vs. reacting) go viral with over a million views on an online journal
 
* Witnessing her clients have breakthroughs including women loving themselves for the first time and men finally crying for the first time in years
 
* Continuing her quest for minimalism, getting all her personal belongings down to 1 box, 1 suitcase and 1 handbag as she travels interstate and internationally
