Mairi Campbell
I'm a musician, performer and facilitator based in Scotland. I make concerts and music theatre shows - the latest is called 'Mairi Campbell - Pulse'. I first came across InterPlay on a recommendation and realised it was doing exactly what I wanted to be doing! I wanted to see how it would translate into Scottish culture so organised many InterPlay events in Scotland mainly and invited leaders from the US and Europe. I became a certified leader in 2016. I have found interplay very helpful both professionally and personally.
Meg MacLeod

Meg MacLeod has been leading InterPlay classes and workshops since 1998: in the USA, the Netherlands, Scotland, Germany and Switzerland, in on-going classes, school teachers trainings, camp counselors, university dance and drama students, and at birthdays community celebrations, and conferences. She has directed and performed in numerous choreographed and InterPlay (improvisational) concerts.

Earlier years.
As a school teacher she regularly directed performances starring the children or brought her musician friends to her school to perform for the kids. In the mid- late-80s as an artist-in-residence, she developed and solo-performed five interactive concerts using music, stories and dance/movement to teach social studies and ecology in 24 US states, Germany and the UK.

As a community activist for Walkable Communities in the 90s she produced several highly successful conferences and two organizations until becoming physically and emotionally 'burned-out'. She credits recovery of her senses and health to InterPlay, the Work of Byron Katie and the 12-step Workaholics Anonymous Program, and loves to share the playfulness and trust in her intuition and in life she has recovered.
Current passions are song-writing, InterPlaying, working the 12-steps and becoming fluent in the Dutch language.

As a Lutheran minister she works in adult education near Frankfurt with focus on people 50 plus. She learned that even ladies in their 80s love a handdance once in a while. One of her favorite forms: fake opera and fake languages with her daughter. She is also a Playing Artist, playing with cross media performance in church (very low-tech) Annegret Zander lernte InterPlay in einem Auslandsjahr in 1992 kennen, ist seit 1996 InterPlay Leader und nutzt die Formen und Prinzipien in ihrer Arbeit als Fachreferentin der Fachstelle Zweite Lebenshälfte in Hanau, Naehe Frankfurt, Pfarrerin, Seelsorgerin, Playing Artist mit Schwerpunkt low rech cross media performance - und das am liebsten als Andacht...
