A new collaboration, Y Consortiwm Cymraeg has been established by the award-winning Theatr na nÓg, Awen Cultural Trust, Theatr Soar and The Welfare Ystradgynlais to present high-quality accessible Welsh language theatre. Y Consortiwm Cymraeg also aims to produce a programme of participation for communities to improve their language skills and also engage in arts and culture on their doorstep. Together, we have joined forces to rekindle the vitality and value of live theatre venues to our communities.
Y Consortiwm’s wheels were already in motion pre the COVID pandemic, but as cultural centres locked down, we realised that the need for these creative hubs was even greater – to help safeguard the future of Welsh language in the valleys, and to support thriving communities beyond the Covid Pandemic.
