Matt Beere - Learning & Participation Manager
I graduated from the University of Glamorgan in 2003 with a BA in Theatre and Media Drama. I started work at Chapter the day after my graduation ceremony and will have been here for 10 years on June 20th 2013.
I began in Chapter as part-time assistant to the Cinema Programmer, and during this time also created collaborative performance work that was shown in the main theatre. I have continued to maintain my love for theatre and performance collaborating with many different theatre companies from Berlin to Tokyo.
After many years of developing my role within the Cinema I became Cinema Coordinator, Film Education Officer, and Cinema and Live Arts Engagement Officer. I have recently been giving the new title of Learning and Participation Officer with the responsibility for developing and delivering a diverse portfolio of mainstream and non-mainstream education and engagement projects for all ages and abilities.
