"Hi Rachel, this is my first time doing something like this essentially my plan is to document my time there. Using people to tell stories rather make a story myself. So I guess I'm open to any advice one can give."

The Art Of Cultural Exchange!

A cold evening in September my phone rang. It was our previous Artistic director John McGrath, he offered me a great opportunity to take part in an international cultural exchange programme in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil - "A Arte de Intercâmbio." (The Art of Cultural Exchange).

I was one of 3 young artists from Britain taking part but what was special for me was that I was the only one representing Wales. As an artist from wales there's only one organisation that I could and would represent… Continue

Hi Ali, 

Welcome to the Community! It's great to have you here. 

Make yourself at home and have a look around. I would recommend checking out the De Gabay project group and the Writers Group. Groups are the best place on the community to share ideas and projects with people who have similar interests to you. You can join groups by clicking on the Join button on the top right. 

You can also add community members as friends, and you might want to connect with John McGrath (National Theatre Wales' Artistic Director, and the person who looks after the Writers Group) and Yusuf and Gavin who are looking after the De Gabay project. 

As usual it's best to get stuck in with the community, but give me a shout if you have any questions! 

Jen
