Daisy Chan

Daisy was based at the Museum of Croydon where was a collections access trainee. She assisted with the front of house team to help members of the public access the museum’s wide range of materials. She also supported volunteers in the day-to-day running of the museum, assisted artists in residence to help them to realise works, and helped to promote the happenings at the museum. Daisy was fascinated by the museum’s archival photographs of buildings, businesses and an asylum that used to exist in Croydon, and compared this to their contemporary use.

Having graduated in Fine Art at University of the Arts London, Daisy continues her art practice, which finds alternative ways of representation. She has taken part in a number of group exhibitions in London, and has exhibited work internationally. After starting the New Museum School, Daisy found it insightful to be introduced to different organisations that showcase diverse culture and heritage in unique ways. This inspired her to think more about the ways museums can adopt a more inclusive position to reach new audiences.
