Lifted by Beauty: Adventures in Dreaming at Rhyl / Y Rhyl

March 31, 2017 at 6pm to April 2, 2017 at 6pm
Rhyl is a town of many tales; a treasure trove of stories. Drawing upon Rhyl and its people as inspiration, Lifted by Beauty: Adventures in Dreaming is a voyage of discovery and memory, a collision of the past and the present; celebrating a place and a people on the cusp of change and transformation. This is an experience that will lead you on a walkabout, taking in the surprising places and spaces of Rhyl. Together we can imagine and dream. Mae’r Rhyl yn dref llawn straeon; trysorfa o…See More

I Am Scared - an experiment in VR/360

Late last year I was fortunate to be awarded a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council Wales. 

Im interested in the 3rd Industrial Revolution and what roles art can/will play in the revolution.

As a part of my award I proposed to make three artistic responses throughout the year, creating something that is inspired by what I have learnt up to that point.



I have just spent a week creating the first response, A VR/360 video…

TEAM Panel - Gavin Porter

Hello all.

 

I’ve been involved with NTW for the last five years in various ways, working for the company for the last four and a half and this experience has been, in everyway, life changing.

 

In 2010 I was a partner in a community enterprise called ‘Community Helps Itself’ we were based in Butetown, Cardiff. We worked around south Wales, working on various community arts projects.

 

I studied film and Television at university, after going back to…

Hi there Gavin

Hope you're well.

I have just noticed  your post regarding RATS and am extremely interested. 

My NTW page is nothing to go by, in fact this is the first time i have looked at it in a while, tending to get my online-found jobs from Spotlight.

I would love to apply for this and audition. I have a huge love for hiphop and am very knowledgeable about it. I also practice combat and martial arts and am a professionally trained dancer as well as actress.

Rhian Lewis put me on to NTW years ago after watching a performance i was in.. She may remember me :)

I can't wait to hear back from you and hopefully arrange an audition.

Bye for now

Erin Leighton
