Veronique (she/they) is a settler of Polish descent, based on the stolen and occupied lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (colonially known as Vancouver, Canada). Her practice, informed by her lived experience of psychiatric disability, spans performance creation, dramaturgy, and facilitation, as well as mental health peer support and advocacy. Their personal and collaborative artistic projects have taken many forms, including theatre, community conversation, virtual reality, and web-based storytelling. Veronique has been an eating disorder peer support mentor, and currently provides emotional support and collaborative safety planning to people navigating mental health crises. She is also part of Neurotales, a Mad and Neurodivergent writers' group. They are passionate about working towards, in the words of Disability Justice activist Patty Berne, "a world in which every body and mind is known as beautiful."
