Kiz Crosbie


Kiz founded Mortal Fools - a theatre, drama and creative learning charity - in 2012. Based in NE England, it specialises in using drama and theatre to support children and young people to have better quality interpersonal relationships - a foundation for wellbeing and for cultivating a more positive and fulfilling future for themselves.

Mortal Fools has four core values:

  • Contributing
  • Growing
  • With Others
  • As Ourselves

They have developed a unique delivery practice which combines approaches from performing arts with research, theory and practice from the social sciences.

It uses participation in co-created arts (like plays, spoken word, audio theatre) as the mechanism to build personal skills like managing fear, public speaking, creativity and innovation and relational skills like empathy, collaboration and kindness.

They won Small Charity of the Year in the 2018 NE Charity Awards, have won awards for their youth leadership and cultural programmes with children and young people.

Kiz is a bold, brave, generous and compassionate leader whose personal passion is creating and holding space for others to develop.




Hear how Mortal Fools revisited their charitable purpose at the start of the pandemic and used it to successfully pivot their operations into fully digital operations and then into a hybrid model. They will share: – what they’ve learned – what digital arts and events have enabled – work with new audiences, partners and networks – how they’ve talked about this to funders – how all of this has supported the charity to double in size in the last 16 months.


July 7, 2021



In partnership with #SmallCharityWeek Every day, small charities across the world uplift, repair, and add value to their community. They do this without big teams, reach, and sometimes – without budget. July’s conference is dedicated to giving a platform to the brilliant small charity fundraisers doing big things, and the people who help them. Join us for an action-packed two-hour summit that will give small charity fundraisers the tools they need to change the world, and remind larger charity fundraisers of the key skills we need for ongoing success. Topics include:
  • Maximising resource
  • Digital
  • Applying for and aceing your Radio 4 appeal
  • Effective communications (online and offline)
  • Data for small charities
  • Virtual vs hybrid vs in-person
  • Prioritising as a solo fundraiser
  • Managing volunteers
*NEW* Our two-track conference will now feature completely interactive workshops to make sure you get the answers you need for the challenges you face. Don’t worry introverts, we still have a track of camera-free presentations so you can lunch and learn.
