Disability Arts Cymru is supporting a new project in West Wales, funded by Time to Change Wales. MaDCaff is going to be holding monthly events, alternating between Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, starting in the New Year. Each event will be a mixture of Performances by musicians and dancers who have been affected by mental illness, themed ‘swap-shops’ where attendees will be encouraged to bring different items to swap – e.g. DVDs and CDs, books, clothes and shoes, etc., and some unbooked space for socialising/ networking/ meeting people.
Currently we have a project representative in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion and are looking to recruit a volunteer from Pembrokeshire. With support from DAC, each county’s representative will take the lead in one event every three months and will be responsible for finding a venue and putting out the word in their local area – with help from the other two and DAC – including the design of marketing materials.
If you are interested in getting involved in this project, which promises to be very popular, either as a Pembrokeshire Representative, or as a performer, please contact [email protected] or [email protected].
