TEAM Workout & Skill Swap


TEAM Workout & Skill Swap

A free National Theatre Wales TEAM event, open to anybody

An time for people to trade skills

Skills can be anything from your profession, such as photographer, to setting up Excel spreadsheets.

The event is designed to help us meet each other’s needs without spending any money. Eg, you translate my programme to Welsh and I’ll mix cocktails at your fundraiser.


Everyone knows that money is tight at the moment - especially people trying to do creative work. We are constantly being told that money is needed to make work, but getting hold of any is so difficult. We would like to turn the tide on this and get back to a culture where people traded for goods or skills, not money. To start this, we are holding an event where people can trade skills with each other with no money changing hands. Maybe you are looking to get your next shows programmes in Welsh as well as English but can’t afford to pay a translator. Or perhaps you are holding a fundraiser and could really do with someone to mix cocktails, but hiring a professional would cut into your donations. Well maybe you could trade your skills with another’s. You translate my programme and I’ll spend an hour mixing cocktails at your event. You win, I win, Art wins, no-one gets poorer!


On the day there will be a mix of people from all different creative professions with a whole host of skills to share.

Hi all!

National Theatre Wales are looking for a group of men to be involved in an epic huge event taking place this summer.
If your male, 16-41 then look here-…/performing-oppo…

It's be a great opportunity to develop skills in ensemble work and understanding of large scale work.

Deadline to apply is TUESDAY!
