These are the guys planning a new youth festival…

YAF Working GroupDuring the Easter break, this fantastic group of young people joined Sarah Greenhalgh, Sarah Vining and me to start work on making a youth arts festival a reality for Wales.  The project has been commissioned by Arts Council of Wales and we are working as Associates of Ceridwen. By the end of August 2014 we will produce a report which details the practical and organisational implications.

This work is being led by young people  – after all, they’re the experts on what they want. We are delighted to have a team which includes people from all parts of Wales and represents a wide range of artforms and approaches.

Can’t wait to start taking them to other festivals in Wales, UK and beyond so they can really  clarify what could work in Wales.

Please leave a comment if you have any suggestions about what the Festival should include.
