The Arts Development team, led by the Arts Development Manager, consists of:
- Fframwaith-funded Youth Arts and SONIG Youth Music Industry
- Learning and Inclusion
- Arts and Regeneration
The team enhances and increases learning opportunities in the arts and creative industries for all those living, working and studying in Rhondda Cynon Taf. We do this by working with the right people - artists and others, to create inclusive and accessible participatory arts activities for all in the area. Within the team we have designated officers who can advise and support you on how to become involved in the arts and how to use the arts in your community, school, youth club or other organisations, including council services.
Arts Development Manager, Caroline O'Neill, can be contacted on Caroline.A.Ofirstname.lastname@example.org or 01443 490258.
