Dr Andy Hickson is CEO of Actionwork Worldwide Ltd and Director of Actionwork®. Actionwork® was founded by Dr Andy Hickson when he combined theatre-in-education tours (TIE Tours) with Creative Action in 1990. For twenty seven years we have aimed to explore the issues that affect young people such as bullying, racism, cyber bullying, drugs, sex and relationships, pregnancy, family, peer pressure, sexism, disability and homophobia. We’ve found a variety of fun and interesting ways to educate, entertain and help young people deal with difficult topics. In 2012, with a view to expanding our reach worldwide, our CEO set up Actionwork Worldwide Ltd. Actionwork Worldwide works independently and sometimes in partnership with Actionwork® to deliver high quality theatre-in-education to schools in the UK and abroad.
