Creative and Events Director

Truchio Powell has years of experience within the performing arts industry. Now employed as the Creative and Events Director at Aston Performing Arts Academy (APAA), Truchio Powell works on empowering the lives of young people through performing and creative arts. 

Performing Arts Creative and Events Director

Truchio Powell joined Aston Performing Arts Academy in 2010 as the Creative and Events Director, and is responsible for the overall project management of events, external and internal and is co-responsible for the overall presentation of the performance groups which includes; choreography, vocal development, song choice and attire, as well as the general day to day management of the students.  

Truchio found his passion for music and performing at the tender age of 8 where he used to duet with his twin brother Pelego, for church members and school peers. He became no stranger to the stage and quickly made a name for himself within his community performing at Talent Shows, Dance Competitions and Church Conventions.

Truchio continued his love for music and performance through secondary school, college and university, being an active member of choirs, wind and steel bands, dance groups and theatre productions. He committed himself to various projects around Birmingham city, particularly Welford Primary School, teaching children the art of dance, singing and performance. Annually the children showcased what they had learned through the production of a talent show that was attended by 400+ supporters, family and friends each year.

Truchio Powell is also the Managing Director of The Alternative Events & Wedding Group, an ambassador for LoveBrum and a Trustee for Creative Academies, an education training provider for children and young people in Sandwell.
