Michael, Founder

We Create Space  was founded by Michael Edward Stephens, a mental health and well-being advocate born in the UK.

 

“Like many queer people, I’ve struggled with identity and authenticity most of my life. I’ve often hidden parts of my ‘self’ out of fear. From hiding my sexuality as a child, to as an adult dealing with complex mental health issues in secret. That’s why I believe we need a platform and community like this, to create a space for positive change. For all those of us still looking for support, connection and solutions.”

Maylis, Programme Director

Maylis Djikalou is a transformation coach and consultant who has worked at the intersection of creative and mental health industries, curating international events and strategic partnerships to promote wellbeing in the workplace as a competitive advantage.

 

"My lived experience and previous struggles with addiction have inspired an ongoing journey in service of marginalised communities, creating safe spaces for courageous conversations and resources to optimise self-care."
