About Jordan Wilcox-Forse

A Creative Practioner Excited about Arts, Wellbeing and Education

Ymarferydd Creadigol Cyffrous am y Celfyddydau, Lles a Addysg

I am a vivid and colourful personality continuing to champion community and participant collaboration, working across Wales.

As a Creative Practitioner, I centre my work within Arts, well-being and Education, where I endeavour to produce an experience that engages the communities I work within, championing inclusion, diversity and equity. 

As an artist, I thrive when exploring the potential of human behaviour, driven by using theatre and the arts to support Well-being and Wellness.

I use my writing to investigate my curiosities in utopian and dystopian genres, exploring the social, economic, environmental and political contexts.

As a theatre maker and producer, I am inspired by the communities that surround me and flourish when working alongside those communities, engaging them as curators of the arts, creating new, representative and engaging performances and art. 

I am the founding director of Pen and Paper Theatre Co, a small-scale arts organisation in South Wales, which has been recognised as an emerging leader within the Arts Industry.

Rwy’n bersonoliaeth fywiog a lliwgar sy’n parhau i hyrwyddo cydweithredu cymunedol a chyfranogwyr, gan weithio ledled Cymru.

Fel Ymarferydd Creadigol, rwy’n canolbwyntio fy ngwaith o fewn y Celfyddydau, lles ac Addysg, lle rwy’n ymdrechu i gynhyrchu profiad sy’n ennyn diddordeb y cymunedau rwy’n gweithio oddi mewn iddynt, gan hyrwyddo cynhwysiant, amrywiaeth a thegwch.

Fel artist, rwy’n ffynnu wrth archwilio potensial ymddygiad dynol, wedi’i yrru gan ddefnyddio theatr a’r celfyddydau i gefnogi Llesiant a Lles.

Rwy’n defnyddio fy ysgrifennu i ymchwilio i’m chwilfrydedd mewn genres iwtopaidd a dystopaidd, gan archwilio’r cyd-destunau cymdeithasol, economaidd, amgylcheddol a gwleidyddol.

Fel crëwr theatr a chynhyrchydd, rwy’n cael fy ysbrydoli gan y cymunedau sydd o’m cwmpas ac yn ffynnu wrth weithio ochr yn ochr â’r cymunedau hynny, gan eu cynnwys fel curaduron y celfyddydau, gan greu perfformiadau a chelfyddyd newydd, cynrychioliadol a difyr.

Fi yw cyfarwyddwyr sefydlu Pen and Paper Theatre Co, sefydliad celfyddydol ar raddfa fechan yn Ne Cymru, sydd wedi cael ei gydnabod fel arweinydd sy’n datblygu o fewn y Diwydiant Celfyddydau.
