Event Description

Everybody is welcome to join us on 4th April, 12 noon, at NTW offices, where we will talk about what the PTT can/should become and who should be involved, what else is happening in Wales and beyond and what we would like to achieve.


Here is a little more about the PTT:


The People’s Think Tank is an interdisciplinary group of problem-solvers; artists, NTW TEAM members, members of the communities of Wales

The Think Tank’s aims are to:

  • give a collective voice for the people of Wales, around issues of democracy and politics, arts and culture;
  • pursue tangible outcomes from the Big Democracy Project;
  • encourage a new collective voice; and to
  • help shape the next phase of The Big Democracy Project.


They will do this by:

  • working within the Big Democracy Project to listen and contribute to conversation;
  • learning, analysing, and sharing ideas online;
  • holding periodical online debates;
  • presenting some of their findings to the National Assembly in March 2016;
  • react to government policy, proposals, papers and recommendations; and
  • influencing the direction of the Big Democracy Project;

If you’d like to join the People’s Think Tank, please contact Gavin Porter at or 02920 353 070.

There’s no criteria – anyone can become a member, anywhere in Wales.

I think I am leaving this Theatre group, I thought we lived in Cymru its more like an extension of London, when you start to actually do some thing that is Cymry then let me know!

We have started a group for The Peoples Think Tank

The first question is should we have a theme tune?

Here is one suggestion, do you have any?

Comment by Gavin Porter on March 31, 2015 at 13:21

Hi everyone, thanks for getting in contact with me about The Peoples Think Tank, I’m really looking forward to our first meeting on Saturday.  I know that some of you have been in contact to say your interested in getting involved with the group but cant make it Saturday and one of the things that would be great to think about when we meet is how we can keep in touch and involve people from across Wales and beyond digitally. Below is an agenda for Saturday:



  1. Introductions – What are you able to give and what would you like to receive from the group?
  2. The Big Democracy Project
  3. The Senedd, March 2016 – who/what/how
  4. The Peoples Think Tank – what do we want to achieve?
  5. Who else are doing interesting things around art/democracy/politics
  6. Next steps

For those of you who are unable to make the meet on Saturday if you want to send over some thoughts I can feed them back to the group, or even better you can join the Peoples Think Tank group


It would be great if these thoughts centred around some of the questions above.
