Voluntary Arts has set up a new online network to connect anyone working, volunteering or participating in creative cultural activities with children and young adults across the UK and Ireland.

We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Miranda Ballin - Chair of Youth Arts Network Cymru (YANC) and the artistic director of Sparc - Valleys Kids to co-host monthly #CreativeNetwork - Children & Young Adults Zoom sessions, from 9:30 to 10:30am, focusing on different themes. This new community shares ideas, inspires and supports each other through lockdown and beyond.

Each conversation will be recorded and sent to BBC Radio Wales for Nicola Heywood Thomas' Arts Show. 

Join our next #CreativeNetwork - Children & Young Adults sessions on Monday 10 August and 7 September from 9.30am via the 'Join' button on our main webpage: https://www.voluntaryarts.org/creativenetwork

On Monday 10 August, we will also be exploring running activities with children & young people with guests Rachel Pedley (Avant Cymru), who will discuss running a recent socially distanced event within Covid regulations; and Rhian Hutchings (Operasonic/ArtWorks Cymru) discussing the singing van and alternative to singing with children.

Everyone's welcome!
