Brandon Cole

2019/20 Fellow

Brandon spent a large portion of his life living in Scotland on the remote Shetland Isles. After graduating from Stirling University in Global Cinema & Videogame Theory, he learnt a great deal about politics, cultural values, and the importance of the arts in nurturing positive change.

This left him satisfied knowing he had spent four years studying something he loved dearly, but directionless in the face of growing social issues – many of which he had faced himself but had yet to actively help tackle for others.

After some time working with a local charity tackling loneliness, and pursuing videogame journalism, Brandon saw an opportunity to share his love for the arts with others, and use its unifying, collaborative and engaging nature to help solve deeply-rooted societal issues.
