Mess Up The Mess is a professional youth theatre company, based in Ammanford, but working across South Wales. Since 2005, Mess Up the Mess has been working with the hardest to reach young people in our communities, using theatre and the arts as powerful tools to engage and empower them to make their voices heard. From small scale issues based workshops and preparation for work training to large scale projects which address difficult issues confronting young people today, Mess Up The Mess challenges young people to believe in themselves and their ability to make their world a better place.
 
We’re at an exciting time in our development: investigating new income streams and ways of working whilst seeking to build on our recent successes and rolling them out to reach even more young people. We need new Board Members to bring experience, skill and their enthusiasm to help achieve our aims.
