Arji Manuelpillai


My name is Arji Manuelpillai. I am a poet, performer, and creative facilitator. I have been involved in community arts projects nationally and internationally for over 15 years. Throughout this time, I have had the privilege of collaborating with some of the world’s most interesting people. From prisons and Immigration Removal centers to schools and youth clubs, I have consistently pushed the boundaries of creativity and self-expression.

I take pride in my ability to inspire and encourage self-expression, utilizing a variety of games and exercises that I have developed over the years working with Drama, Storytelling, Music, and Creative writing.

I firmly believe in the benefits of every art form and advocate for the power of the arts to strengthen relationships in communities worldwide.

The prospect of collaborating with Magic Me is a personal aspiration, offering a unique opportunity to align with their esteemed ethos and ethics, enhancing my understanding of co-creation and intergenerational practice. Magic Me stands out as a remarkable platform for my professional evolution as a multi-disciplinary participatory artist.
