As part of this year’s Get Creative Festival, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Menter Gorllewin Sir Gâr are going on a creative tour around Carmarthenshire!
On 16 May 2019, Llinos from Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Siân Elin from Menter Gorllewin Sir Gâr will be visiting schools and devising creative workshops for pupils. The varied workshops will offer an opportunity to promote confidence, learn performance skills and give the pupils an opportunity to learn new games. The workshops are available to years 3 to 6, and are a great way to introduce the world of Welsh language theatre to the pupils. The workshops will include creating a story by using props, and using movement creatively, and will last around half an hour, with space for 30 pupils in each workshop.
The annual Get Creative Festival – now in its fourth year – shines a light on innovative and inspiring creative activity across the UK. Last year’s festival saw more than 1,400 events across the UK and 2019 is set to be another successful year, with arts organisations and community groups hosting opportunities for people to try their hand at something new and creative.
If you’d like us to visit your school, and in order to arrange a time, please contact:
