foundations laid by
Jac’s commitment to creating change through people has spanned her entire career. Whether launching a platform to help companies release the full potential of their workforce or launching self directed learning environments for young people, her passion is mobilising the power of people as a force for good in our lives and the world. In addition to her work with NEW, Jac co-founded a grassroots aid organisation to rebuild the south coast of Sri Lanka after the tsunami, helped create a sustainable marketing plan for the Earth College in Costa Rica, and launched a successful community theatre company in Bali. Before becoming a social entrepreneur, Jac spent seven years at Bain & Co. working as a global strategy consultant for multi-nationals in the US, Europe and Asia. She studied psychology at the London School of Economics and Management at the MIT Sloan School. Jac is based between the multi-cultural wonderland of central London and a small village in rural Bali, Indonesia where she lives with her four excellent dogs and a number of important bugs.
Maya joined the New Earth Works to learn entrepreneurship as part of her self schooling curriculum and immediately fell in love with the combination of creative arts, activism, and alternative learning. She loves applying her creative skills to building immersive installations, creating social media, making live performances, and designing products
In addition to her love of all things visual, she performs on stage, and practices aerial silks, dance, and film-making. She love dogs, using her imagination to think up crazy ideas, and her production capability to make them real. In addition to her work at the new earth works she is a student at Central St. Martins in London where she is studying performance design and practice.
Bali production team
At our studios in Bali we start and finish much of our creative work. We also host learning experiences, community events, and general creative chaos. None of this would be possible without this amazing team who we love, respect, and care for very deeply. This is our family.
