I am very pleased to have been welcomed onto the Board of Trustees for Pegasus which has remained an important part of my life for over 18 years now.
I gained a degree at Warwick University in Theatre Studies and Dramatic Arts and went on to train as a performer at the Ecole Jacques Lecoq, Paris and as a set designer at the Laboratory for the Study of Movement (L.E.M) in Paris. In 1992 I returned to the UK with Aurelian Koch and we set up and ran our own company creating devised productions and touring them internationally. The Pegasus Theatre was where we opened all of our touring shows and they mentored us as a young company and as individuals and championed our work with the Arts Council, as well as providing opportunities to develop exciting and innovative youth theatre productions. I joined the Helen Hamlyn Trust as Director of Projects and Research at the start of 2004.
I am an experienced teacher having run projects in design and performance for professional companies, drama schools, colleges, schools, forensic psychiatric units, young offender institutions and special schools nationally. I am passionate about learning and celebrate the fact that it never stops!
I am currently Director of Projects and Research for the Helen Hamlyn Trust and Trust Director of the Open Futures Trust, a subsidiary of HHT. The Trust’s core ethos is to develop innovative projects, which aim to effect lasting change, improve quality of life and create opportunity for the benefit of the public.
The Trust’s grant making is in the fields of medicine, arts and culture, education and welfare, healthy ageing, international humanitarian affairs and heritage and conservation in India.
Lucy is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and sit on the Royal Horticultural Society Education committee.
