Fellowship Year

Nisa Cole as Gerda in The Snow Queen

I was a BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellow for a year at Z-arts, the Manchester venue for children and families.

During my fellowship year, I focused on digital storytelling, bringing together my experience in theatre, production, digital and broadcasting to explore digital storytelling for theatre audiences.

I was lucky to be mentored by the late Philip Osment during this time. I also wrote and directed the short film, Crybaby, which accompanied Philip’s Christmas production for Z-arts, The Snow Queen.
