Adrian Berry – Artistic Director Jacksons Lane Theatre, London:
I worked with Dawn during her time as director/programmer of Xposure disability arts festival at Jacksons Lane in London. She reinvented the concept and brought new energy and life to accessible arts in our capital, also displaying her skills as a fine curator of Arts work. This led to my commissioning her for a very challenging hand-on project in Camden where Dawn was Director on a piece of work with young adults with challenging behaviour. Dawn has always displayed commitment, passion, strong administrative skills and a great all-round knowledge of the arts. She comes highly commended.
Vera Ceschin – Director Instituto Arte Itaporanga, Bahia, Brazil:
Our project ‘Circle of Values’ - a project uniting art and human values offered to 100 children and youth in the South of Bahia, Brazil, is in its third year, and it is a success. This would not have been possible without the presence of Dawn Fleming. She helped me transform a simple desire into a viable and enduring project.
With competence, objectivity, information, simplicity, a refined eye, sensitivity for others, loving care and a captivating smile, she helped me in all the steps of the process: research, project development, interviews with artists, the choice of the activities, fundraising and evaluation. Eternal Gratitude!
Eira Gibson - Director of Participation and Outreach, National Centre for Circus Arts, London:
Dawn is an inspiring director and facilitator. She is able to capture the imaginations of young people and take them on a creative journey, achieving more than they ever thought possible. She shows leadership and is able to give clear direction but is generous supporting others and making sure everyone is fully engaged. She does all this on a tight budget and with an infectious smile.
Andres Roberts - co-founder Way of Nature UK:
I worked with Dawn in London on some wonderful interactive projects. A dedicated, highly creative practitioner -
full of life and sparkle!
Shira Klasmer. Artist/Performer about the performer development programme London
The sessions were always full of energy and excitement, which brought people together to create fascinating and intriguing situations. I particularly learned a lot about the beauty in the physicality of theatre and the freedom to express the story through motion.

Just to tell you that the job you do in workshops as well as in performance is absolutely great, and I would be more than happy to be able to get involved more and more
