Thomas Jack Brown
Thomas Jack Brown is a video artist, video installation artist and freelance media producer based in Worcestershire, United Kingdom. Thomas joined the Creative Media MA for the 2018/19 programme after spending several years in the media industry and in the Further Education sector.
He says of the course: “If I could use one word to sum up my experience of the MA course it would be ‘transformative’. The core of my creative practice, how I conduct my creative business and how I identify myself as a creative practitioner has changed for the absolute better”.
‘I decided to conduct my Master’s Education at the University of Worcester because of the high quality of teaching in my immediate local area. Being able to stay local and receive a quality post-graduate education was a big factor in deciding to attend the University of Worcester. The high quality facilities and incredibly supportive staff helped to push my practice-based and theoretical research skills and processes to a new level to enable me to bid for commissions, residencies and bursaries for new video work. A Master’s Degree is something I have wanted since completing my undergraduate. I am so thankful that I chose the University of Worcester for it’.
Since graduating in 2019, Thomas has received commissions, gallery residencies and had work selected for exhibition from arts organisations in The Black Country, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Central London, Northumberland, The Netherlands and is in discussion for screening work in San Francisco, USA. Thomas has also received direct funding from Arts Council England for producing video work for online/social media distribution.
