CASGLIAD 2017 - inspiring youth arts conference comes to Powys!

We've recently become members of Youth Arts Network Cymru, or YANC as its called for short and are already feeling the benefit of being plugged in to an energising network of youth arts practitioners and organisations in Wales, so imagine our delight when they announced they would be holding their next youth arts conference in Llandrindod, on Saturday 13th May!

Casgliad 2017 welcomes youth arts practitioners of any artform, as well as emerging artists, students and anyone interested in youth arts to come and explore the sector in Wales.  The day will include Open Space forum discussing the hot issues for youth practitioners; key note speech from Marc Jaffrey OBE on change, creativity and education and amazing practical workshops from the likes of CONEY

The day concludes with a Eurovision themed party at our venue own Dance Centre!
