Theatre Artist Alyson Evans shared the 2015 Australia Council for the Arts Kirk Robson Award with Alysha Herrmann.
Alyson became involved in Community Arts shortly after graduating in her home country of Wales with a BA (Hons) in theatre studies in 2006. Since then she has worked worldwide delivering theatre projects in schools, prisons, community hubs and remote Indigenous communities. In 2011 Alyson arrived in Australia and spent three years in the NT facilitating theatre programs for youth in remote communities as well as a year-long intergenerational project in the Tiwi Islands.
This month we asked Alyson about the role of mentors, the future of CACD and how CACD artists and the majors can collaborate successfully.
