PhD Researcher: Theatre, Young People and Environmental Justice

Supervised by Professor Matthew Reason and Dr Catherine Heinemeyer, my PhD considers how can theatre be used as a tool to amplify the voices of young and marginalised communities within the Environmental Justice movement.

I am a theatre director and creative practitioner, whose work is often inspired by socio-political issues. I am currently the Youth Theatre Director at Freedom Studios, Bradford and Co-Artistic Director at Vandal Factory, through which I collaborate with a diverse range of artists and young people.

I will begin my research by assembling a group of Bradford based young people and asking them how they would wish to use resources at Freedom Studios and Vandal Factory to tackle environment injustice in their local community. I wish to investigate how theatre can strengthen this movement and make a tangible impact on the level of engagement, advocacy and leadership from marginalised communities with the environment.
