More About Grace

Grace has an extensive background in theatre, both in Dublin and in the US. She has managed a youth program for Irish Travellers, enabling them a safe space to explore and learn about their culture. She has also worked extensively with IamIrish, a UK-based international movement that connects, supports, advocates and empowers Irish people of Mixed ancestry/multi-ethnicity, and explores perceptions of Colour, Culture, Identity, Heritage, and Irishness. Presently she is working as the Producer’s Assistant/ Trainee Producer at Keeper Pictures. Being a person of color in this industry hasn’t been easy, but moving into production was a natural step for her.
