Get Creative With RawFfest At Newport Riverfront

This weekend, BBC Wales, Arts Council of Wales and What Next? are teaming up to celebrate the nation’s creativity and to celebrate, RawFfest will be running a taster day at The Riverfront, Newport. RawFfest is the exciting new national youth arts festival for Wales and it will kick off in Newport in August. Anyone aged 14 – 25 can come along to a range of free workshops on Saturday April 2 from 12 noon to 4pm.

The taster day will have workshops in dance, music, opera, theatre, art and lots more. National Dance Company Wales, Operasonic, Tin Shed Theatre Company and Pentalk Lab will help provide workshops free of charge.

April 2 will be a chance for young people to put their energy and ideas into planning and programming RawFfest.

“RawFfest/GwylGrai is a rare opportunity for young people to get involved with a project of this calibre- a project that is being put together for the benefit of young people passionate about the arts,” said Callum, 17, from Ammanford. “The fact that young people are helping make this happen, makes it even more exciting!”
