Confidence Tricks – rhymes and reasons for wellbeing

We are very proud to promote the work of Hannah Chutzpah as our first grant recipient.

Hannah has polished up her unique stand-up poetry show from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is taking it on tour throughout the country on behalf of the Rainbow Heron.

From Isle of Wight and Southampton through London and Cambridge to Edinburgh and Glasgow, venues and audiences include a mix of traditional arts settings (poetry nights, arts centres) along with Sixth Form Colleges and youth groups such as the Woodcraft Folk.

Reviews and reactions include:

  • “Since attending her show, I’ve thought differently about the way I interact with people I admire. I’ve been less apologetic for my presence. It’s making a lot of little differences, and I’m happier and more confident as a result. Thank you; you may have changed my life.”
  • “An awesome person; helped me identify several symptoms of my social anxiety.”
  • “Feel like I’ve learnt some valuable life skills to get me through dark days, thank you.”
  • “I work in an environment that aims to provide tools to give young women confidence – how to do it? Your show reinforced that talking and achievement and time help.”
  • “Entertaining and inspiring!”
