Connor Allen

Connor Allen is an actor, writer, poet, and creator whose work is greatly inspired by different genres of music, especially grime.

His work is heavily inspired by elements of his own life such as grief, love, masculinity, identity, and ethnicity. He has been commissioned by many companies such as Sherman Theatre, National Theatre Wales, BBC, and Literature Wales. He is a member of the BBC Wales Welsh Voices and The Welsh Royal Court writers’ groups and was also longlisted for the 2020 Wales Writer in Residence.

The Live Work Fund will support Connor's creative development through 2021 and his idea to create LOYALTY - a collective of Black artists working across different disciplines in Wales as they look at creative ways to develop their voices and artistry through industry mentorship and workshops whilst also supporting each other and taking risks.
