Amanda wright (Founder / director)

Since graduating from Royal Central School of Speech & Drama’s BA Acting course in 2003 Amanda has worked regularly as an actor, facilitator, audio describer and practitioner.

Amanda has devised and delivered education projects for numerous Arts organisations including Tricycle Theatre and Orange Tree Theatre as well as several corporate role play companies and is currently a Globe Education Practitioner for Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. From 2005 - 2011 Amanda was a Visiting Lecturer at the prestigious Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and in 2008 she was also made the Artistic Director of Royal Central’s Jack Petchey Youth Theatre.

Passionate about making the Arts accessible for all and using creativity to improve literacy skills, Amanda created the organisation in 2011. 

As a Black British woman from Tottenham - an area of high poverty - Amanda overcame barriers to pursue an arts career and created Arts Bridge to help demolish these barriers for others.
