We were delighted that artist Cerys Knighton and actor Jenna Preece were awarded funding from The Livery Company of Wales to support their work. Keith Shankland has been a long-time supporter of DAC and with the Livery Company has created a new award for young disabled artists to apply for every year. We will be sending out details for this year’s award very soon.
The presentation took place at The Talent Shack in Cardiff where Shelley Norton’s Actors Management is based and who represents Jenna. In the photograph two pieces of Cerys Knighton’s art work can be seen on the wall behind.
I am sure wining the award will greatly assist the career progression of both Cerys and Jenna and we are very grateful to Keith and The Livery Company of Wales for creating this wonderful opportunity.
