Ashleyrose Gilham

Actor, Writer, Spoken Wordsmith, Comedian, Dancer, and Singer

Ashleyrose Gilham is an actor, writer, spoken wordsmith, comedian, dancer, and singer. Her life as a femme black artist with a disability informs her artistic expression, and her art reflects her value system: it’s decolonised, multi-layered, and continually expanding.

Ashleyrose earned her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from the University of California, San Diego, before moving down under. She recently performed in the black radical feminist hip-hop fairy tale, One the Bear, at Arts Centre Melbourne and Sydney Opera House. She delights in storytelling collaborations with fierce full-hearted artists who disrupt the status quo and highlight those who have been marginalised for far too long.
