Hello, I'm Daniel Swift FRSA

CEO & Co-Artistic Director

Daniel is a creative producer, inclusive theatre practitioner and doctoral researcher.

Daniel undertook his Undergraduate Degree in Drama in the Community at Bishop Grosseteste University, where his work in the PMLD sector began when he undertook a position as Drama Teacher at a Lincoln specialist education setting, since then he has worked consistently with various respite centres, hospices, PMLD groups and sensory story companies. He then went on to read a Master’s Degree in Theatre Making at the University of Hull, where he specialised in Inclusive Theatre for People living with PMLD. He’s now undertaking his PhD at Rose Bruford and University of East London, where he is researching narrative accessibility in theatre for audiences with PMLD.
