Daisi has built a wealth of experience in designing and delivering arts participation programmes that improve outcomes for local people and communities across Devon and Torbay, including the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
With an established and highly respected reputation for collaborative work across the culture sector, Daisi has led on a number of initiatives in which co-design with local communities lies at the heart, and health and wellbeing outcomes shape the activity.
In 2013-16 Daisi was consortium lead for Devon County Council’s £300,000 arts participation commission arts wave devon: enriching wellbeing through participatory arts.
