Katie’s latest project is The Emerging Kind, an outcome of the Emerging Proud launch, which took place in 12 countries on the 12th May 2017. The question of the event asked: “What do we need to create a society in which it’s safe to talk about extreme human experiences?” The need for validation, safe spaces to openly talk and feel heard without fear, and support from Peers who understand what it feels like, were the key responses from all 12 countries.
