Sometimes our work gets recommended in public, with prizes, reviews or public shout outs on social media; sometimes we get lovely messages of thanks directly. To help you understand what we do and the impact it has on audiences, on artists and on the world at large, this page will share some of those comments.
“Caroline ran the brilliant Jabberwocky Market events as I set up Festival of Thrift and we supported and encouraged each other, frequently partnering each other on projects. Now, with Leila D’Aronville, she has established and run the online forum Tyne and Wear Cultural Freelancers, tirelessly advising, supporting and advocating for the freelance community. Their constant positive and practical advice and their active search for information and guidance on any aspect of freelance working is of huge value to those of us isolated from each other and from paid work in the cultural sector. This is Caroline all over, making us feel part of something bigger, never pushing herself forward, but giving a hefty great push to the rest of us! “ – Stella Hall, Cultural Producer
“Caroline has already started putting access at the heart of her festival’s agenda… She’s moving faster, and more nimbly and affirmatively than a good half of the art venues in bigger and more populous towns and cities with bigger and more funded and more visible arts scenes.” – Exeunt magazine
“Y10 GCSE Drama students had the privilege of working alongside Holly Gallagher, a professional actor and director in their lesson this week. Y10 are currently working hard on creating their Component 1 devised pieces based on the theme of ‘freedom’. Gallagher guided them through a workshop focusing on tricks and techniques for successful devising effective and thought provoking pieces of theatre. Students came away inspired and eager to implement Gallagher’s pearls of theatrical wisdom into their own! I was incredibly impressed with how the students represented our school and proved themselves to be curious and confident theatre makers. This workshop was as a result of our invaluable and flourishing relationship with Jabberwocky Market and Luxi Creative. Thank you to Caroline Pearce for continuing to offer our school amazing opportunities within theatre and the arts.” – Ashleigh Barker, Head of Drama, Polam Hall School
