Claire has been invited to present at a number of International Conferences, including: Greenwich University, The University of Auckland, New York University. Through practical seminars, workshops and papers Claire has disseminated her practice-as-research.
In many ways MacNeill's work exemplifies applied theatre research at its best. Claire has been developing research with what she describes as 'misrepresented' young people for many years...her work has been committed to examining where and how applied theatre can integrate into the worlds of these young people and be of best use. She has been committed to discovering new languages, processes and research frames for, with and by young people as the collaborators of the research."
