Flinders Drama Centre Graduates        

Class of 1990

Richard Bennett
Following graduation from Flinders University Drama Centre in 1990, Richard worked for the State Theatre Company in their production of The Removalists in both Adelaide and Sydney with director Robyn Nevin. After a period of freelance acting in television, film and community theatre, a deep interest in the environment and community cultural development led Richard to become involved in a number of Landcare focussed and funded environment projects south of Adelaide. These activities led to projects in building rural community awareness of environmental issues, the development and application of a personal cultural landscape aesthetic, and silvicultural design activities on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Richard is now involved with a number of other community activists in the Southern Vales region looking at the effects of the arrival of climate change and the decline of oil on life and travel in their area.
