BA Applied Drama Graduate 2019
Combining personal ambition with innovative facilitation to break new ground in representation inquiry, Matt devised a unique project at the end of Year 3 that explored identity politics and how we use labels.
His independent project ‘#lovehasnogender’ used autobiographical storytelling techniques with two diverse community groups to explore and discover the commonalities found through the universality of moments of experiencing love. Following the success of his project, Matt presented his work to a room of over 50 established youth arts practitioners at a Youth Arts Network Cymru conference held in our Llys Glas studios.
After graduating, Matt went on to successfully complete an MPGCE and is now bringing creativity to the classroom as a primary school teacher near London.
