‘Engaging Communities, Building Futures’

Atrium drama event

1-day Networking Event

On Friday 18th October, at the Atrium Campus of the University of South Wales, Cardiff

At 10am coffee for a 10:30 start

We are working in partnership with the Atrium Campus of the University of South Wales to facilitate a networking event for Welsh-based Community Artists, applied drama and theatre practitioners, facilitators and directors, and others who draw on the techniques and values of drama, dance and performance to deliver opportunities within communities in Wales.

The day is design to respond to emerging trends in education policy that see creative practices like drama, dance and performance at risk of disappearing from school curriculums, while public response suggests that communities want participatory creative opportunities.

This event is for you if you are involved in or support the delivery of programmes where theatre and drama are the principle artistic approaches, producing participatory or interactive theatre performances, facilitating drama processes for specific populations (from refugee to youth, older aged people to young dads etc), running short term or long term projects freelance or in association with a community agency

Please come along and share this with people that you feel should know about this event or who would benefit from coming along. We look forward to a lively, thought-provoking, collaborative and creative day.

Please contact [email protected] for more info, Faculty of Creative Industries, University of South Wales, ATRiuM, Adam St, Cardiff, or call Ali Franks, Drama Development Worker, Valley and Vale Community Arts, on 01656 729246.
