Criw Celf: Developing Talent in the Visual and Applied Arts for Young People

Please spread the word to any talented young artists looking for a great opportunity to explore and develop with professional artists, and exhibit in gallery venues…

Criw Celf, an Arts Council of Wales strategic national project being led in the South East Region by Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre, provides children and young people with an opportunity to develop their artistic skills, working outside of school, alongside professional artists in a variety of different settings.

The programme focuses on young people who have been identified by school teachers as having a particular potential or talent and introduces them to a rich and varied menu of artistic genres opening their eyes to the breadth of career possibilities that Art & Design can lead to. Criw Celf is a targeted programme of work, not an open-access participatory project.

Criw Celf  contributes to the Welsh Government’s More Able and Talented (MAT) agenda. It also forms a key part of the Arts Council of Wales’ Young Creators strategy around ‘Developing Young Talent’.
