Hello! My name is Rosey Brown, I’m 24 and currently live and work as a writer, arts practitioner and project coordinator, splitting my time between Cardiff and Berlin.
I’ve lived in Cardiff for the past five years, first coming to the city to study for my BA in English Literature and Music. In 2014 I received a scholarship to study the MA in Creative Writing course at Cardiff University. Cardiff has been a wonderful place to study in: it’s a capital bursting with culture and diversity, with new opportunities and initiatives in the arts always popping up.
In 2015 I spent three months on an internship in Berlin, and fell in love with the city. So, as well as keeping a base in Cardiff, I will be living in Berlin some of the time, helping on projects with Grüner Grashalm across Europe. Please get in touch if you would like to hire me for project work in Wales or Germany!
In the latter half of 2015 I won a Literature Wales Bursary and as a result wrote the best part of my first novel. So far in 2016 I have been continuing my work with Arts Active, the education and audience engagement charity for St David’s Hall and The New Theatre, in particular working as Assistant Project Manager on Performance, a multi-genre art project for young people, with Community Music Wales, Literature Wales, NoFit State Circus, Earthfall and others. I also started working with Emma Beynon, teaching for the CABAN Scriblio scheme in Powys. We also worked together for this years Oxford Lieder Festival Schools Project, creating seven songs with six groups of Oxford school chilrden.
As well as this, I’m continuing my writing work, and am looking to expand my practice in the arts. I am particularly interested in arts education – be that leading more writing workshops, or devising educational performances. I’m always looking to meet new people and collaborate on new projects, so please get in touch if you’re interested in working together.
