What art forms do you work with?

Daisi works with over 100 professional artists across all art forms – from dance to literature, media arts to music.  To see some examples please refer to projects and artists.

What is Daisi’s child protection policy?

Daisi places our Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy and Procedures above all else.  We have an NSPCC approved Policy that all staff and artists must adopt within their practice.

All artists with whom we work must have a Certificate of Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS), their own Public Liability Insurance policy, and a proven track record of experience. In addition, all Daisi artists are required to undertake safeguarding training (minimum level 2) every three years.

Daisi artists have access to training and advice to help them continually develop and improve their work in schools and other education settings.  Daisi has an evaluation strategy which ensures that work is observed and evaluated to keep standards high.

For Daisi projects and events taking place out of school, Daisi ensures that all safeguarding measures are in place.  We take great care with our communication to parents and young people about activities, ensuring that they have clear, written information about the activity, and all participants will need to submit a signed parent or carer permission form.

Do you offer work experience placements?

Daisi works with Year 10 students every year to provide a varied and stimulating work experience placement within a busy arts office.  If you are interested in carrying out your work experience week at Daisi please contact us.

Daisi has also created placements for older young people, such as those within Higher education, as well as for graduates, and for those looking to gain professional experience at another time in their career or during a career change.

Daisi also has experience of an Apprentice position.

Daisi values volunteers and is able to offer volunteering roles (subject to availability) for people with diverse skills and experiences.
