Dr Molly Mullen

Molly is a senior lecturer in applied theatre with over ten years of experience producing theatre education, youth theatre and community arts projects in the UK and Aotearoa New Zealand. Her research examines the opportunities and constraints experienced by artists creating socially engaged art, theatre and performance as they work within particular funding and policy contexts. Her book, Applied Theatre: Economies, examines the ways socially committed theatre makers fund, finance or otherwise resource their work and, in doing so, negotiate tensions between an economic imperative and their political, aesthetic, pedagogic and ethical values.
