Dan is featured an article in The Stage that assesses the impact of Brexit on UK theatremakers.

He was interviewed on Times Radio about the visa issues faced by UK creative workers 

trying to work in the EU and he was invited to speak to Labour MPs

including Harriet Harman, Kevin Brennan and Jack Dromey at a creative industries roundtable

about his experience of this issue.

He was also a co-signatory to recent letters sent to Boris Johnson

by Equity UK, and the set/costume designer Andrew Edwards, calling on the UK government to reopen negotiations with the EU for an EU-wide visa waiver system for creative workers.

In 2020, Dan was sponsored by the Almeida Theatre

to be one of their representatives on the Freelance TaskForce.

The purpose of the task force over 13 weeks (June - September 2020)

was to strengthen the influence of the self-employed theatre and performance community. 

Dan has been Equity Councillor for Directors, Designers, and Fight Directors since 2014.

He was re-elected unopposed to the Council (2020-2022).
