About the founder
Grace, with a background as an actress, performing in theatres ranging from the Battersea Arts Centre to The National Theatre. On Channel 4 and again on BBC. It was a chance experience as an 11-year-old, after a month-long stint at a famous theatre school; which ended prematurely due to a lack of family funds, that became the catalyst to her lifelong passion for making quality performing arts more accessible to children. With memories of tackling childhood poverty, leaving school without GCSEs and becoming a mum by the age of 16. Grace recalls that the little access she did have to the arts in childhood, inspired her imagination, nurtured her confidence and inadvertently made learning fun. DramEd now has a mission to make quality arts more accessible to children in education, regardless of their background from their earliest years. It was Grace's experience of taking unfulfilling work, in-between acting jobs, that is behind her crafting DramEd to support performers with business, alongside children in education.
