Louise Jackson, OBE
We are deeply saddened by the sudden unexpected passing of our dear colleague and friend, Louise Jackson. Louise served as a Director on the Board of The Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts Limited for many years. Always conscientious she gave her full commitment, especially as an active participant on the Programming Advisory Committee where her knowledge of the international performers under consideration and their skills was evident. Whilst fully supportive of all genres of the performing arts there was no question in the minds of those who were privileged to serve with her that her passion was dance.
As an educator her support of the Festival’s Outreach Programme and its mission was unconditional. She was always available and gave of her time and experience willingly.
Cognizant of the high standards achieved by Bermuda’s performing arts community over the past few decades, she focused on the caliber of artists under consideration, wanting to be sure their skill would challenge and inspire both students and audiences alike.
Louise had a large heart which she willingly opened for causes and people she cared about. We at the Festival are privileged to have known her and worked with her in the performing arts space. We have lost a dear and much loved friend.
