After 3 years at the Festival, Patsy returned to Toronto to start her own touring company, PAS Cultural exchange Arts. The concept behind PAS was to develop international exchange tours with various art forms.
Patsy’s return to Britain to have children, brought her in contact with the SW branch of Live Music Now, where her project & tour management skills were put to work initially on a special needs schools project, and eventually on the justice projects that the branch was developing.
