Support Worker Parker Johnson, who works with community in creating inclusive, safe
spaces, to discuss with theatre students how mental health can affects theatre artists. Please

important conversation on mental health and the theatre artist, moderated by Dr. Taiwo Afolabi
and co-presented through the Theatre Department and the Centre for Socially Engaged Research. Link

Bio – Nicole Malcolm
Nicole Malcolm is an arts administrator, storyteller, and creativity facilitator whose work now
takes place primarily on the traditional lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations in
Victoria, BC. Wearer of many hats, her passion is creating spaces and opportunities for artists,
audiences, and community to find joy and good health through the shared moments of learning,
exploration, and understanding that storytelling sparks. She is presently the
Director of Marketing & Communication for Pacific Opera Victoria, and serves as Vice
President on Intrepid Theatre’s Board of Directors as well as sitting on the Executive Committee
and Regional Awards Committee for Pro Art Alliance of Greater Victoria.

When not administrating or advocating, this queer, Métis interdisciplinary artist is
currently working as an Improviser with Paper Street Theatre co. (Victoria Fringe Festival pick of
the Fringe: Audience Favourite 2013, Best Ensemble 2016 & 2017); as local Drag King,
Justin Fever (The Vicious Poodle and Friends of Dorothy’s); as Lighting Designer on Isaiah Bell &
Sean Guist’sThe Book of My Shames, a new queer opera with recent performances at Opera Kelowna and
UNO Fest, and upcoming 2022 engagements; as Dramaturge for Dave Morris’ in-development
improvised play 52 Stories (supported by the BC Arts Council); and as Playwright of a collection of
new urban folklore for city kids, featuring the storytelling/movement piece When Lightening
Strikes, originally developed as part of Story Theatre and Impulse Theatre’s 2021 Wee Peeks
showcase of new works.

Bio – Parker Johnson
Parker Johnson is an adoptee from Savannah Georgia, who has grown up on the Traditional Territories
of the Lekwungen People. He holds a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Psychology from the University
of Victoria with a Minor in Education. For the past several years, Parker has frontline experience
doing community inclusion and working as a Youth Support Worker within group homes. In 2019, Parker
came up with the idea for This is Table Talk, which began as a men's circle, and soon expanded into
a community platform as a way to decolonize conversations within his local community. Parker had a
goal of reminding people that they have a voice and that it is worth hearing. Using his education
and past experience, Parker uses this platform to create safe spaces that promote relational acts
of kindness, validating participants' experiences through the power of storytelling.
