Matt Peacock

Streetwise Opera, CEO

Matt Peacock MBE

Matt Peacock founded Streetwise Opera in 2002, a charity that uses music to help people who have experienced homelessness make positive changes in their lives. Winner of the Andy Ludlow Homeless Award, Gramophone Award, Arts & Business Award and Royal Philharmonic Society Music Award, the charity runs a music programme in six cities every week with over 500 people each year. Streetwise’s opera productions seek to be of equal artistic and social merit, focussing on the achievements of the performers not their needs. All of Streetwise’s productions involve new commissions and all have received four and five star reviews in the national press.

Matt is a former homeless support worker, opera critic and Clore Leadership Fellow. He is one of 30 social activists profiled in Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s book, Britain’s Everyday Heroes and was one of the Evening Standard’s Most Influential Londoners in 2013. He was awarded an MBE for services to music and homelessness in 2011 and is a Trustee of People United.
