Two Welsh projects get funding from the Cultural Olympiad

Tagged with:

Both the successful Welsh projects should prove really interesting and will be experienced across the UK. Chris Tally Evans will be embarking on a nationwide community storytelling project that focuses on turning points in people's lives. Eventually this will become a touring installation and series of interactive workshops for young people.

The other successful project is the 'd' Monologues run by the Llanarth Group. This will result in a dramatic collection of monologues for deaf and disabled performers addressing the dearth of pieces that are written from a disability perspective and the shortage of parts written for disabled performers.

Both sound really inspirational and are finally giving me a much clearer idea of what the whole Cultural Olympiad is all about! I've been struggling to understand the concept up until now but I'm getting there I think. We'll be talking more about these projects and other Cultural Olympiad events on the Radio Wales Arts Show between now and 2012.
