Ashley Joseph

Location: East London

I am a creative artist who performs and runs workshops all across the world with a strong affiliation to the borough of Barking and Dagenham.
I have worked in this borough for 10 years this August 2016, as a presenter (Dagenham Party in Park & Rising Star awards), actor (Aladdin Panto & ACTing Up Broadway Barking), a choreographer (Snow White) and I have a long standing relationship with the arts organisation Studio 3 Arts.
I am actor in residence, which means I run the Young Actors Company, I am the lead artist for the flagship performing arts project; BIG DEAL and I am currently writing a new version of the Merchant of Venice to be performed this year as a professional promenade production in Barking town centre.
I have also presented for MTV BASE, acted in Eastenders, written for BBC RADIO 1 Festival and I am an international presenter for LIVE NATION, recently hosting Dubai Music Week.
I have performed and taught workshops to disadvantaged young people in the following countries; Serbia, Netherlands, Bahrain, Greece, Belgium, and Berlin.
I am also currently running a young directors course for students at Dagenham Park Secondary School.


I am the co creator of the best improvised comedy show to come out of East London;
ACTing Up! Which has a residency at The Rich Mix theatre.
