Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams has launched a new social media app, designed to be a “creative platform championing creators”.
Launching at 2pm today and available here, ‘Daisie’ is aimed at creative people from the worlds of art, fashion, film, photography, music and literature – designed to “revolutionise social media” and “provide an alternative route into the industry”.
“Success in the creative industries [has been] wholly dependent on luck and ‘ins’” said Maisie in a statement. “This is set to change by introducing a new way into the creative world through connections made organically”.
She continued: “Our main focus is on community and closing the gap between experienced creators and people just starting out. We want learning to be as easy as communicating and we’re enabling creative collaboration all in one place, under one roof.
“The fluidity between creative industries is something that really motivates us; the ability to be inspired by something and have the option to take it into the direction of your choosing.”
The company was co-founded by film producer Dom Santry, who added: “The possibility of actually learning and honing your craft as a result of using social media is something that seems quite foreign, and yet makes complete sense. It’s important to slow down sometimes, and take more care when considering the content that you’re being exposed to, and whether it’s relevant to your own personal journey.
“Daisie will allow users to build new, honest communities and find the people they naturally connect with.”
The eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones has been confirmed to hit screens in 2019.
