Jacy Stewart

Social Entrepreneur Educator and Enterprise Strategist

Always a lover of music and drama after finishing secondary school Jacy attended the BRIT Performing Arts and Technology School during its second year of opening. She went on to perform at the Albany Theatre in Deptford, the Lyric Theatre and Oval House in London, and undertook various extra work for TV and film. 

Jacy worked on a series of pilot sitcoms for the BBC before joining a theatre company where she was the centre organiser, doing everything imaginable and conceivable involved in theatre productions. All this, plus gaining first-hand experience of working behind the stage set her on the road to a career in enterprise and entrepreneurship. Now Jacy has started several businesses, while at the same time assisting artists in their own pursuit of fame.

Rachel Burn

Dance maker and performer

Rachel Burn is a dance maker and performer. Trained in London and at the Cunningham School in New York, she loves to make work that is clear, precise and intricate.

She has been creating work in London for three years that has been shown at various festivals: Resolution, Emerge, Cloud Dance, UK Young Artists. Out of habit she tends to work with women and in groups. Her work is often emotional and philosophical, but using real life and every day experiences to create from, she uses the body in an abstract way to communicate human things.

Artist and broadcaster

Scottee is an artist and broadcaster from Kentish Town, North London. He is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends, Huffington Post and i-D magazine. Scottee is currently an associate artist at Olivier award-winning company Duckie and the iconic Roundhouse.

As well as performing for audiences at Barbican, Royal Opera House, Tate Britain, Roundhouse, ICA, South Bank and Royal Festival Hall, Scottee has graced the pages and airwaves of The Guardian, Dazed & Confused, Radio 4, the Independent, W, Radio 1 and Sunday Times' Style.

Scottee is not easily definable; broken limbs, sequin jumpsuits, a big heart, a strong head and piles of fake eyelashes. There's no doubting he has a determination to please his audiences with his brash, clumsy and provocative approach to art, performance and light entertainment.
