Hi, I’m Owain and I’m a film and theatre-maker, activist and photographer.
My work focuses around representation and empowerment of marginalised communities, art as activism and the creation of immersive environments in film and theatre. My past experience includes directing Sleeping Rough, a docudrama film about street homelessness in the UK, an Exeter Phoenix-commissioned short called The Hardest Fight, about using boxing as a way of fighting against depression, and a short documentary series commissioned by Rife Magazine, called Crisis and Hope, about homelessness services in Bristol. In 2019, I led the organisation of Bristol Homeless Action Week, a week of events centred around getting people involved in Bristol’s homelessness community.
I was named by Rife Magazine as one of their 24 Most Influential Bristolians in 2016, and in 2018 delivered a TEDx talk about homelessness and compassion. Current projects I am working on include a short documentary looking at life inside Young Offender’s Institutions, as well as completing my BA degree in Theatre and Spanish, where the majority of my work focuses on empowerment of marginalised and subaltern communities through art.
Feel free to hit me up for a chat, a coffee or a pint.
