Tanya Hubbard is Woodbrooke’s Programme Coordinator for Racial & Social Justice. Tanya is a facilitator and trainer of conflict transformation and dialogue. She has worked in China, the Palestinian refugee camps of Lebanon, Thailand, Uganda, London, Myanmar and France. Her passion is in using non-violent communication and creative approaches to enable people to re-connect compassionately with themselves, to re-humanise and connect with people who are ‘other’ and to notice the human impact of systemic oppression. Her work invites people to re-imagine their communities and the current power status quo to create a more just, compassionate world, and to enable healing.
Tanya continues to work from a distance to support peace and dialogue in Myanmar as the Co-Director of MASC(Myanmar Art Social project), and to support the de-colonisation of the international ‘aid’ system, as a facilitator in the feminist collective Healing Solidarity.
Raised in a Quaker family in Wales, Tanya is also a certified yoga teacher and permaculture practitioner, living in France and the UK.
