Evan Watts


After graduating from the VCA Drama school in the early 90s, 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.
