Daisy Jacobs

2017 Fellow

Daisy is a French and Drama graduate from the University of Bristol. While at university, she founded Bristol New Voices, a theatre project designed to connect inner-city young people with Bristol University students and the professional arts community. She also worked as a facilitator with Blesma, the limbless veterans charity, inspiring wounded ex-servicemen to become public speakers and workshop facilitators. Her final year dissertation explored notions of risk and safe space in community-based theatre practices, considering how theatre can affect change in the personal lives of participating individuals and communities.

Daisy has also volunteered as a French and English teacher in Calais’s unofficial refugee camp and worked at The Orange House, a space providing support, activities and shelter for vulnerable refugees in Athens. Daisy loves photography, particularly portraiture; cooking – and eating– with friends and family, and searching out live music.
