Hi there, my name is Daryl and I have worked extensively within the Theatre, Disability and young peoples arts sector for the last 20 years. I’m a recognised cultural leader in youth arts participation as well as a high profile advocate for disabled artists. The core of all of my work has been a belief that arts can enrich the quality of our lives and those of the communities we inhabit. I am an active advocate for improving the rights of disabled and vulnerable people by promoting access and inclusion within the arts.
Working in this way has required me to try a variety of ambitious, imaginative and unorthodox approaches to creating relevant and playful theatre that removes barriers and ensures engagement for all and across all art forms.
In 2010 I was selected as one of 15 Cultural Leaders creating and producing work in the outdoor arts sector by the Independent Streets Arts Network (ISAN) and in 2013 I was recognised with an Action for Children’s Arts Members Award for my commitment to enriching children’s lives through the arts.
