The following may be of interest to some of you - it looks great!

Community Music Wales will be running a community arts tutor training course in Cardiff this July. 


The course will aim both to develop essential, core competencies and to celebrate and encourage individuality and diversity.
 

Who is it for?


For people who:

  • Want to increase their skills, knowledge and understanding in using creative activities in their work with people.
  • Already work in a creative field, or want to start using art in a work or voluntary context, including youth workers, teaching assistants, carers, early years workers, play workers, day centre staff, after school club leaders, youth justice sector workers etc
  • Have a strong interest in creative activities and have some artistic skills
  • Have the potential to inspire and motivate people to create

The training is accredited through Agored Cymru and thanks to the Arts Council of Wales lottery funding we are able to offer it at the amazing price of £120 (£80 Concession)

 

Course Dates:

 

1st, 2nd, 9th, 15th and 16th July 2016

Words:

They are hurricanes,
threatening danger with every sound,
they can tear you apart.

They are stars,
thousands of miles away
never quite seeming reachable.

They are fires,
scorching and burning
ready to spit should you get too close.

They are graveyards,
holding forgotten memories
and buried dreams.

They are maps,
trace the lines with your hands
and find a new world.

They are mirrors
holding every inch of you,
both the parts you like and those you can hardly seem to face.

They are shadows,
the darkened silhouettes of you

on a cold December night.

But above all,


they are an escape;
a place to go when your mind is too full

and too empty all at once.

"Words are prisoners;
banging on their cell doors,
fighting to get out.

Words are fire;
spreading with ferocity until someone finds the water.

Words are flowers;
they take their time to bloom,
but when they do they're beautiful."

Katelan Rowlands

We were delighted to work with Bryn Hafren school in Barry on an intergenerational photography project for 'Before I Leave' - it contains some fantastic, emotive images and will be displayed in the foyer of the Sherman for the run of the show, please do pop along to see it if you have the opportunity.

Patrick Jones also delivered a creative-writing workshop at at the school, the results of which are two beautiful poems, written by the pupils.  Here they are for your enjoyment

Thank you Rosey, this sounds fantastic.

If you are a teacher or are working with young people, we just wanted to let you know about a great opportunity surrounding our show, "Before I Leave" - on 2nd and 8th of June there will be post-show discussions with writer, Patrick Jones and emerging director Gavin Porter, which will offer a fascinating insight to the writing and rehearsal process.  Also, if anyone would be interested in bringing a group along for a backstage tour, we would be very happy to welcome you.  For more information please do get in touch, naomichiffi@nationaltheatrewales.org

If anyone working with 14-25s could spread the word about Arts Active's summer project - it's free to participate and working with great organisations - Literature Wales, NoFit State, Earthfall Dance, Community Music Wales and more.  This year we're running a steering group to give young people even more input into the run up to the show and our first meeting is this Saturday:  http://community.nationaltheatrewales.org/events/performance-first-...

Hi Mark, it would be good to meet with you at your event in May to hear more about your project.  With regard to funding, there are numerous funding opportunities available through Arts Council Wales.  Let me know when your information evening will be, many thanks.
