About Claire Jamison

Claire is an actor, writer, and founder of POPC (Power of People Combined).

Based in Brooklyn, New York, and born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1991 to parents who worked in the Twin-Cities homeless shelters, AIDS housing projects, and not-for-profit theaters, Claire took the influences around her and developed a passion for creating art that tells the story of pressing social issues of today.

In 2013 Claire received her B.F.A. from SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Theater Arts. She was the recipient of the Patricia Kerr Ross Award for “originality, excellence, and promise in the arts.”

Throughout College, Claire was a recipient of the George Mitchell Institute Scholarship for her goals of social activism through the arts, and in 2015 Claire received the Alumni Fellowship from the Mitchell Institute for the development of her play, A Hyacinth in the Mountains. In February, 2017, Claire founded POPC to create work which amplifies the voices of underrepresented people and cultures through art and performance, and in May, 2018, POPC produced the premier production of A Hyacinth in the Mountains at the 14th St. Y.
