Adeola Dewis is a Visual Artist and Research Fellow at the University of South Wales. Adeola holds a President’s Award scholarship for PhD research at Cardiff University, Wales and has received several grants from the Arts Council of Wales to develop and realize collaborative arts projects. Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Adeola has an interest in folk and indigenous cultural performances involving aspects of re-presentation through masking and/or performance.
Adeola is experimenting with the vast language of Carnival performance aesthetics to begin particular engagements with the Butetown Community in Cardiff, South Wales as part of the Representing Communities project. This new work aims to explore some of the ways in which creative arts can positively impact on perceptions of wellbeing and on policy making. This work will have a particular focus on first generation Caribbean migrants associated with Butetown, facilitating ideas of community re-presentation.
