Sherry, Executive Director (Maternity Cover)

“This is an exciting time for Upswing with new multi-year projects and new partnerships around London, the UK, and the world.  It’s also an exciting time for Camille, Upswing’s long-standing Executive Director as she takes some time out to welcome her first child into her own (and the Upswing) family.  I’m thrilled to be able to step in to her considerable shoes and to help keep this exciting work moving along.”

Sherry Neyhus came to the UK for one-year to enrol on the MA in Arts Administration at Goldsmith’s College and still finds herself here some considerable number of years later.  In that time she’s worked for both large institutions (National Theatre,  Hackney Empire/LIFT) as well as a number of smaller, artist-led organisations (The Opera Group, Poetry Translation Centre, Opera Machine,  Dash Arts).  She is also a trustee of the English Folk Dance and Song Society.  Theatre, music, dance, visual arts, literature or participatory/community work – it’s all about the transformative power of the arts.
