Evan Watts


After graduating from the Victorian College of Arts drama school in the early nineties, Evan made his way in the Melbourne independent theatre scene with his plays being performed by a range of theatre companies (La Mama, Playbox, Griffin Theatre) and on ABC Radio. Retraining as a teacher in 2003 (continuing a proud family tradition) he now heads an innovative Year 9 City Program at Eltham College that prioritises community engagement and authentic outcomes in an urban environment. He’s passionate about the power of storytelling and utilising a drama-based curriculum to release the creative power of the next generation of change makers.
