CLOVIS LOWE, DIRECTOR
Clovis Lowe is a filmmaker, photographer and educator with over 20 years’ experience making films with marginalised groups including young people at risk of offending, adults with mental health conditions and prisoners, mainly for charity clients.
He began Oxygen Arts to produce films that centre the experiences and concerns of people from the global majority and support young people from those communities to develop a career in the industry.
He is currently working on a feature length documentary that documents and celebrates the achievements of black dancers in British ballet and a fiction short set in a post-Covid, global dystopia.
Oxygen Arts connects global majority communities across the ‘Black Atlantic’ to create art that explores the issues that impact on their lives, enables them to speak their truth, and drives equity within the creative industries.
Too many communities around the world are still divided by race and class. Oxygen Arts creates uncompromising art with people from the global majority that connects communities, challenges the systems that are failing us, and celebrates excellence, in the UK and the Caribbean.
Over the past three years, we have developed the landmark Black British Ballet project, produced the Windrush themed film Two and a Half Questions, and worked directly with over 200 people in London and Grenada to help them to explore and share their stories with communities around the UK.
