Who are we looking for? You don’t have to be an elite artist or performer, but you do need a passion for the arts and creativity. You will be happy to express your opinions in a group, but equally be a good listener and respectful of people who may have different views.
How old do you need to be?We are looking for people aged between 16 and 25 on 1st March 2017.
How much commitment will this need?You need to be available for planning meetings. North Wales meetings are 22nd Feb, 8th April, 2nd June. South Wales meetings are 24th Feb, 8th April, 31st May. Other planning will be done through social media and smaller groups. (If you are very keen to be a part but can't make one of the dates, tell us at the end of the form below). We hope you will be involved for 2 years: the first to learn the ropes, the second to take the lead. (RawFfest will happen in different parts of Wales each year.)
Where and when will we meet?North Wales: Venue Cymru, Llandudno. South Wales: location to be confirmed but probably Cardiff and Newport. Meeting times are likely to be during the day and early evening. We will work with successful candidates to look at transport options so you are not out-of-pocket.
How will we chose young people to be in the groups? We are asking organisations to recommend young people who will enjoy being involved and be able to contribute well. To work effectively, the groups need to be quite small. We will aim to make sure groups include: different genders, Welsh speakers, disabled young people, geographical spread across Wales including disadvantaged areas, young people from minority groups. We also want to cover as many art-forms as possible: dance, art, drama, film, circus, music etc. as well as people passionate about the arts but more comfortable backstage and running things.
