Tom Powell

Tom is a Creative Producer based in London with three strands to his practice – theatrical events, live music, and formal conference or research events. He regularly produces dynamic, interdisciplinary projects which share an element of social conscience. This practice began professionally as the Artistic Director of Creative Vortex – a production company aimed at making academic research accessible and engaging. Tom is a member of the Institute of Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship, and his clients range from funders such as the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, for whom Tom curates and manages the residential conferences for their various grants, to Peace Child International, for whom Tom has recently produced UN75 Middlesbrough and previously been involved in other projects.

He is ardently committed to combining music, theatre, and research as a vehicle for change, and the creative process as a space for intersectional dialogue, progression, and empowerment.
