Concrete Youth’s CEO and Co-artistic Director is awarded a fellowship by the Royal Society of Arts

Concrete Youth is delighted to announce that its CEO and Co-Artistic Director, Daniel Swift, has been awarded a Fellowship by the Royal Society of Arts.

The Fellowship of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (FRSA) is a highly prestigious award granted to individuals that the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) judges to have made outstanding achievements to social progress and development.

Speaking of the award, Daniel said: “I’m extremely humbled to have been nominated, let alone awarded the Fellowship of the RSA. It’s a huge honour. All I wanted to do with Concrete Youth was allow our audience regular provision in the arts, when they suffer such an extreme lack of it, and to be recognised in this way for this work is incredibly emotional for me.”

Concrete Youth is a multi-award-winning company dedicated to creating ground-breaking and exciting multi-sensory theatre for audiences living with profound multiple learning disabilities (PMLD). 

Daniel joins notable Fellows such as Dame Judi Dench, Gareth Malone, Alex James, and previous Fellows like Benjamin Franklin, Charles Dickens, Marie Curie and Stephen Hawking.
