BIO – LUCY ALEXANDER

Alexander Lucy 150x150 1

Lucy Alexander was born in 1954 in Port Elizabeth. She grew up in Johannesburg but moved to Cape Town in her adult years. Having worked for 10 years in art museums, she changed track to become an educator of adults focused on training trainers at the Centre for Adult and Continuing Education, University of the Western Cape. Most of her late career has been devoted to co-ordinating and writing learning materials for distance learning programmes at several NGOs and two faculties at the UWC. She likes to spend time in nature, garden, dance, write and be in water. She strongly believes in the healing capacity of dancing and writing, and the capacity of writing to connect people across difference. Contributing author to the Life Righting Collective’s This is how it is anthology.
