Biography

Better known as Ganyamatope (my ancestral family name) my heritage inspires me to make connections with other people through creativity, and the natural outlook to learn. Educated by assigned teachers through the schooling system, and by natural teachers through ‘pasichigare’ (my ancestors lifestyle), I benefit from having more than one way of knowing/learning. As a result, I find myself playing many roles in creativity and education. I am a poet, playwright, storyteller and musician. I am currently UNESCO artist-in-residence at the University of Glasgow in the team led by Professor Alison Phipps, who is the holder of the UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts. I am poet-in-residence of Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network (GRAMNET) and Honorary Research Fellow with the school of education at the University of Glasgow since 2013.

I have research and teaching roles in the school of education and medical school, at the University of Glasgow. Other educational roles are with Glasgow School of Art, University of the West of Scotland, University of Stirling and Newcastle University, and Scottish book Trust.

I am co-founder of Seeds of Thought, a non-funded arts group. I write, perform, organise events, run workshops amongst other things. We often collaborate with other writers, artists and musicians.

Through my creative arts expression and experience, I am now involved in education at all levels, and my creative journey continues.
