National Theatre Wales’ Assembly is developing into democratically-elected projects to be delivered across the length and breadth of Wales.
Rehearsals are underway in west Wales for Assembly 02 on the 4th of May 2012 and now Assembly 03, mid Wales, requires your online votes to decide how we proceed. We also need fresh proposals from you for Assembly 04 taking place in North Wales, so get thinking and bring us to your town to get that conversation going.
As with the previous three, we’re asking local people, companies and groups to suggest project ideas, from which three will be shortlisted. The shortlisted ideas will then go through a two-week online public voting period, and the idea that receives the most votes will then be delivered. Abdul Shayek, National Theatre Wales’ Creative Associate, will then start the month-long development process, with three of the six Assembly performers and three production staff, culminating in a five-day intensive rehearsal period leading to a one-day event.
National Theatre Wales can offer great support to help you realize your idea, including:
We want you to send in ideas for a project you have in mind, that highlights local issues and aims to create some debate. We are looking for ideas could take place in unexpected local spaces. Below is a mock-application to get you thinking:
Local hotel/pub is keen to preserve local wildlife and natural beauty surrounding it. However, there is an oil refinery nearby, and there are concerns around the impact it is having on the local environment.
The hotel/pub wants the Assembly to create an event that will highlight the issues and facilitate a conversation on how both can co-exist.
Local resources they can offer include a lighthouse, their hotel, access to the open fields surrounding the area and a local group who deliver ghost tours.
The proposal for ideas needs to take place in North Wales.
To request an application form or for further information, please get in touch with Abdul Shayek – firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date for proposals is 12:00hrs 29th May 2012
