Mathieu Charles (he / him) is a Creole/Belgian theatre maker, spoken word performer and dramaturg at Theater Rotterdam. In the past he was mainly active in spoken word circles and the hip-hop scene. He also gave creative writing workshops and lectures about everything on the spectrum of decolonisation. These days he is continuously working on an art form where he ‘takes’ different influences or samples to create something new.

In 2019 Tools for Action became an official non-profit foundation (Stichting Tools for Action Foundation). The board meets on a quarterly basis, evaluates Tools for Action projects and ensures that the specific mission statements are met, manages the financial resources and assists Tools for Action with strategic advice on long-term goals and supports on a project-by-project basis. Every year the foundation publishes a yearly report, that can be viewed on request by emailing the secretary of the board.
