Being Human is a festival of the humanities. Dan worked with the University of Kent and Canterbury Roman Museum to deliver workshops and performances around the hopes and fears of architecture, using artefacts from Britain's Roman history to inspire participants.
Dan was Canterbury Laureate 2013-14 for Canterbury Festival, working on City of Voices, a community-based poetry project, writing commissioned poems, and delivering workshops for the Schools’ Poetry Competition. The competition culminated in a final event on National Poetry Day, where prizes for writing and performing were given.
