Feedback from DIY Theatre Company......
This has been a very exciting and positive experience. We have learnt loads as an organization and we are inspired to build on the experience and develop our own work in a new direction. You were brilliant at finding a delivery which matched the needs of company members and partner schools. This has really supported our partnerships with the 3 schools involved, which will hopefully provide a good foundation for further work with these schools.
Feedback from Andrew 'Skatz' Scattergood...
"I have just completed my Arts Council funded project which involved gathering stories from people of all walks of life all about those who inspired them, then writing and putting on a play with music all about it. I chose Dawn to be my collaborator on the gathering, my script editor on the writing and my director on the play, and I did that for several reasons. I had worked with her before with Bamboozle and had witnessed at first hand her charm, sensitivity and focus, and I knew that what I needed was someone who could bring out the best in me and the people from who we were going to be gathering stories. This project was a crossroads moment in my life and career as an artist, and I can't thank Dawn enough for helping and guiding me sensitively, showing determination in her desire to get the words just right, and directing me with the right amount of pressure to draw out some painful but necessary memories and emotions. I would work with her again in an instant"
Feedback from Ashfield Special School
The students all loved the 2 days. When completing their own evaluations of the day they remembered all of what happened WITHOUT props and “aide memoirs” which was quite something! Thank you very much Dawn – it was a very exciting experience for us all. Liz Pilmore Teacher Ashfield Special School

I Am Able Project - 2012
'Dawn has helped the Douglas Bader Centre, to develop the very successful Disability Awareness programme -'I Am Able' I Am Able is being taken into Leicester Schools, to give students an insight into disability issues.
Dawn has worked tirelessly, skillfully, and superbly to coach the services users of the Centre, in order that we can put on a very good programme for the schools. It is thanks to her total commitment that we have been so successful.
Dawn is a very professional, dedicated, lady with a super personality. Without her we would not be in the position we are in today and our grateful thanks go out to her'
