Wednesday 15th myself, Matt Ball, Simon and Laura took a trip up the Anglesey to begin to make links with people on the Island in readiness for NTW's month long residency during June. Getting there was an experience, we found it was cheaper to fly than to travel on the train, so we jumped onto a 19 seater plane which was a lot more pleasant than it sounds. As I am responsible for the Anglesey Assembly I was keen to meet both people from the creative community and active community members to get a sense of what the Assembly should be about, who should perform, what technical people could be involved and who should be audience members.


Through speaking to people a few recurring themes began to emerge:


  • Employment
  • Youth Flight
  • Language (Welsh/English)
  • Power (Nuclear/Wind)


Over the two days we met with some really passionate people and I got a real sense of community and that people are extremely proud of their Island, its history and culture and I am genuinely excited about working on Anglesey of the next month or so.


I'd like to thank Simon, Dewi, Carol, Catrin, Mr Millburn, Iestyn, Susan, Diane, Khethi, Tamara, Alan and everyone else that we met for taking the time to speak to myself and Laura.


This is a short video from our two days:
