Student Profile(s)

Mohamad Shaifulbahri, Graduated 2016, Founder and Artistic Director of Bhumi Collective, which produces work in the UK and Singapore.

Gaining access to industry professionals, showed me the ever-growing importance of a producer in the industry today and how it stretches beyond budgets and spreadsheets alone. My time at Central opened my mind, heart and soul to infinite possibilities surrounding my practice that I could never have imagined before – best decision ever.
