The workshops are made possible by ‘Reach the Heights’ – a major Welsh Assembly Government initiative aimed at reducing the number of young people in Wales aged 11 – 19 years who are not in education, employment or training, or at risk of being so.
According to the press release from Sophie Bennet, Aberystwyth Arts Centre will be co-ordinating three different projects with Young People through this scheme during the Autumn. These projects provide free training and mentoring for artists in all disciplines who wish to develop their skills for working with young people.
This sounds like a perfect opportunity for digital storytellers and facilitators in Wales.
