Arts in the community

Theatr Clwyd works with our communities and make the arts accessible to everyone. These projects bring communities together, explore social issues and work with people who may traditionally have felt excluded from the arts.

Here are a few of our projects:

Hubs

During the summer of 2020 when no one else could enter our building, we partnered with social services to run summer hubs. Working with Creative Freelancers, 60 young people from vulnerable families and children of the local health board key workers spent the summer being creative, having fun and socialising.

“Flintshire and Clwyd have identified a need here and done something about it in a celebratory and sustainable way. Lockdown has been hard for children and for carers. A bit of help can go a long way” Samuel West, Actor and Judge on Hearts for the Arts (Theatr Clwyd nominated project)

The Justice Programme

Now in its tenth year the Justice Programme explores the consequences of crime with young people. In partnership with the North Wales Police and Crime Trust (PACT), the educational workshops take young people into a HM Magistrate and Court where a real magistrate deliberates on the sentencing of the lead character Connor. The project remains current with themes including county lines and knife crime.

Theatre of Sanctuary

We are working towards becoming a theatre of sanctuary for refugees and displaced people. Since we started working with our refugee community we worked on a number of projects including taking a song to the Eisteddfod to celebrate Syrian and Welsh cultures.

A donation to Theatr Clwyd helps us to continue our Arts and Community programme and ensure that more people in our community are supported with the arts.
