Voluntary Arts has set up a new online network to connect creatives who work with children and young people 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 People 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. 

Apologies to anyone who experienced difficulties taking part in the session scheduled on 7 September at 9.30am.

You are welcome to join our next #CreativeNetwork - Children & Young People session with guest speaker Abigail Lawrence, Head of Public Engagement at BBC Wales, on Thursday 10 September from 1.00am via the 'Join' button on our main webpage: https://www.voluntaryarts.org/creativenetwork

Thank you for your time and understanding! We're looking forward to seeing you on Thursday.

Everyone's welcome!
