ADAM STRICKSON

Adam Strickson trained at Dartington College of Arts (Theatre), Sunderland Polytechnic (Sculpture) and the University of Huddersfield (MA in Poetry).  He has been working for six years as a writer and part-time lecturer in the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds, and has recently been appointed as a Teaching Fellow in Creative Writing. 

After an early career as a performer and mask maker with theatre companies like Horse and Bamboo and Satellite Arts, Adam co-founded Chol Theatre, the pioneering inter-cultural company based in West Yorkshire, and was artistic director for 13 years until 2002.  He led projects throughout the north of England and in India and Bangladesh. 

He has written plays for the Oldham Coliseum, Peshkar Productions, Chol, North Wales Stage and an acclaimed trilogy for Burnley Youth Theatre.  In the past three years, he has completed four writing and short film commissions around regeneration themes for Integreat Yorkshire (funded by Yorkshire Forward).

In May 2005, his first collection of poetry, ‘An Indian Rug Surprised by Snow’, was published by Wrecking Ball Press (Hull) and he was Poet in Residence at the Ilkley Literature Festival.  In 2006, he was writer in residence for the town of Boston, Lincolnshire.  He is Bridlington Town Team’s Facilitator for Yorkshire Forward, helping local people think creatively about the future of their town.

Adam is currently in his third year of a part-time PhD in ‘Adaptation and Libretto’ at Leeds University in collaboration with Opera North.
