From MA Student to Staff Member

SAC extends a warm welcome to Paul Margrave, the Marketing and Box Office Coordinator for Brown’s Theatre Arts and Performance Studies department.

Before moving to America in 2012 to study at Brown, Paul “was the Director of a London-wide festival of arts made by older people. The festival features work by older artists in many disciplines, and it had twin aims: shifting public perceptions of older age, and creating high-quality opportunities for participation in the arts,” he explains.
