Malcolm Richards

Founder and Director, The Culture Yard (CIC) Ltd

Hi, I’m Malcolm.

I founded The Culture Yard to expand my life work supporting and facilitating ‘talk’ for education that seeks to transform.

I’m a community educator, as well as a former teacher, senior leader, and local authority advisor in England and Wales schools.

I’m an independent researcher at the University of Exeter, where my research relates to critical dialogues in education, decoloniality, identities, cultures, teaching and teacher education.

I’m also a consultant, associate and advisor for some amazing education organisations such as here, here and here. I’ve even contributed to several books, academic essays and journal entries.

I’m also the co/owner of the amazing independent bookshop Bookbag, which is in Exeter.

I live in Devon with my wife and two daughters.
