National Youth Arts Wales (NYAW)

Thursday 23 November 2017

NYAW was established in autumn 2016 and became responsible for the operation of the ensembles on 1st October 2017. 

We provide exceptional training, performance and personal development opportunities for Wales’ most talented young artists

In 2018, the young people who take part in NYAW activities will work with high profile international artists, in projects delivered in partnership with some of Wales’ leading arts companies.

In 2018, NYAW will run six residencies for young people aged between 16 and 22. These are for:

  • National Youth Brass Band of Wales
  • National Youth Choir of Wales
  • National Youth Dance Wales
  • National Youth Orchestra of Wales
  • National Youth Theatre Wales
  • National Youth Wind Orchestra of Wales

These residencies will take place in July and August 2018, although in future years some of them will be held at Easter. From 2019 there will also be a programme of additional projects intended to extend the demographic and geographic reach of the organisation.

We wish to compile of list of freelance producers from which we can draw when commissioning future work. We will use experienced freelancers to support the work of our small team of permanent staff; this include having lead responsibility for a project.

The team currently includes: Consultant Transition Director, Peter Bellingham; Senior Producer, Matthew Jones; Administrator, Alex James. We are also recruiting for a Producer role (permanent) and an Arts Administration Trainee (fixed term)
