In her 20’s Diana became politically active and co-founded Actors for Nuclear Disarmament and later her interest in Human Rights led her to join Actors for Refugees as producer/performer and writer. Her story, ‘Willy Willy in Woomera” was published in the anthology ‘Acting from the Heart’.
A late-starter at University, Diana studied screenwriting at R.M.I.T. when she was 50, and her short film scripts for children, ‘Take 2’ were published and distributed in schools. Diana has been able to combine her passions for travel and writing with trips to Indonesia, where she has worked as Playreading Coordinator, producer and actor with the prestigious Ubud Readers and Writers Festival in Bali.
