Yoav Segal is an award-winning film and theatre-maker with a passion for social action projects that affect real change and stories that challenge people to think. His grandfather was instrumental in organising the ‘Battle of Cable Street’ against Oswald Mosley’s black-shirt fascists, and this inspired much of Yoav’s career direction and focus.

Yoav works with NGOs, charities and businesses focused on youth engagement, social inclusion and peace building in conflict zones. His films have been seen at the world’s leading festivals, on prime-time TV and his theatre work at Sadlers’ Wells amongst other leading venues.
