In the Making – Tobias Manderson-Galvin

Tobias Manderson-Galvin – Master of Writing for Performance

By the time I reached the VCA I had a politics degree and a diploma of arts. I decided to study the Master of Writing for Performance because there was and still is no other course like this one, not in Australia or overseas.

My VCA experience has already been instrumental in my continued success thanks to the interpersonal networks, the experience as a working artist and the exposure to an academic culture that doesn’t have to end with one of those teddy bears with the tiny academic cape, mortarboard cap and monocle.
