Call for Regional Reps

TYA CYMRU are looking for 5 volunteer regional reps. This is a new role, and an exciting opportunity – ideal for an individual in an existing organisation or company; or for a graduate or emerging artist building connections within their home region and beyond.

A rep can be rooted in any performance art form creating work for young audiences, and is not limited to job role (in other words, get in touch if you’re a producer, administrative, creative, maker etc). Ability to speak Welsh desirable, but not compulsory.

The role of the reps will include:

• Continuing the development of relationships with individuals, organisations and companies who have an existing TYA CYMRU link in the region.
• Cultivating new relationships and connection in their region with individuals, organisations and companies who have previously engaged with, or are new to TYA CYMRU.
• To seek out and generate opportunities for TYA CYMRU members to come together to ‘go and see’, share skills or network.
• To report events, performances, opportunities back to the Welsh members of the TYA UK board, who in turn will promote the information across Wales.
• To promote, maintain and grow the network of TYA CYMRU.

The regions are as follows:

• North (Gwynedd, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Wrexham, Conwy and Anglesey)
• Central (Ceredigion & Powys)
• South West (Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire & Swansea)
• South Central (Neath Port Talbot, Rhondda, Merthyr, Caerphilly, Blaenau & Bridgend)
• South East (The Vale, Cardiff, Newport, Monmouthshire & Torfaen)

The role of the regional rep is new to TYA CYMRU, and will be run as a trial until 31st January 2019.

TYA CYMRU is a voluntary organisation, and holds no funds currently. Therefore please only apply if you are happy to incur small costs such as mileage, parking etc (however these should be minimal, if at all!).

If you’re interested in this opportunity, please email jon@jondafyddkidd.com with a short introduction to who you are, your practice, and links with TYA, you can include a CV if you think this is helpful.
