Many performing arts  courses in Higher Education benefit from the input of specialist practitioners offering skills and experience not always covered by full time staff. If you are looking for a professional input into a project or module from a company with wide experience and academic credentials then Artizani can help.

Artistic director of Artizani, James Macpherson, has taught in a variety of institutions since 1988. Currently employed as an associate tutor at Edgehill University and associate lecturer at Manchester University he teaches street theatre, circus, commedia dell arte, visual theatre, mask, clown, acrobatics, physical theatre, acting styles from Greek to Post-Modern and directs student productions.

He combines an academic training at Manchester University with specialist knowledge in a range of disciplines; the experience of exchanges and visits to international training establishments in Russia, France, Portugal and New Zealand and extensive professional experience to inform his teaching. He is currently writing up his M.A. (graduation January 2015), which focuses on arts funding and the effect it has on artistic expression.

One of James's key skills is the ability to relate an up to date experience in his specific professional arts sector to training and academic research.

 He has extensive experience of delivering lectures, workshops, seminars, tutorials and directing student performances - from studio fragments to full theatre productions.  He is confident with H.E. assessment strategies (practical, written and viva), and comfortable with a variety of learning platforms including Blackboard. In addition Artizani has a proven track record of graduate mentoring leading to employment.
