Volunteer Call-Out: Dare to Reimagine, Treorchy

Volunteer Call-Out: Dare to Reimagine, Treorchy

30 May – 3 June 2016

Theatr Iolo and Park & Dare are on the look-out for volunteers to help with Dare to Reimagine, a site specific community project created by artist Anna Poole. The project will take place in Treorchy and will be an audio tour created with the help of pupils from Treorchy Primary School. This is part of a three year artist and community development project called Platfform – you can find out more about Platfform and Anna’s project which here: http://goo.gl/i2UP4c.

Artist Tiff Oben has been working with year 6 pupils from the school to create fantastical and bonkers art installations which will be put up in different locations across the town.  These installations range from a shoe box shrine for a murdered unicorn called Gary (obvs) to a sculpture of broken imaginary friends trapped in bottles to a forest land of happy string and happy words.  Each installation will need to be set up before the audio tours take place and we need your help to put them up!  This is a mass community project and anyone can get involved!

Volunteers will need to be available;

  • 30th May time TBC (around 2 hours)
  • 1st June – 3rd June, 9am-3pm

Why get involved?

  • You will be part of a community project which has involved around 100 young people from Treorchy Primary, Gelli Primary and E-teens at Treorchy Library
  • You will gain valuable experience on site specific stage management
  • You will build links with Theatr Iolo and Park and Dare Theatre

This would suit anyone looking to gain experience in stage management, production or someone who would just like to be part of a community project in the RCT area.

This is a volunteer role and all travel expenses and lunch will be covered each day


If you’re interested in being part of Dare to Reimagine, we’d love to hear from you! Please contact Theatr Iolo’s Associate Producer Olivia Harris on olivia@theatriolo.com by Wednesday 18th May to register your interest.

Platfform is made possibly by support from Arts Council Wales and Esmée Fairbairn.
