Breaking Barriers

Breaking Barriers involvement in digital storytelling started with BBC Capture Wales and went on to successfully run a range of projects and training for 5 years under the aegis of Caerphilly County Borough Council. To fully reach its potential, it needed to stand as an independent, sustainable social enterprise. Breaking Barriers Community Arts was formed in late 2007 by like-minded people who have experienced the digital storytelling methodology in action and can see its great potential as a community arts tool for individual development and community regeneration. It became incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee on 25 March 2008 and has continued to run a range of projects since that time.

Deborah Ann Withey

I am a Welsh-American artist whose early career was in visual communications: in journalism, print, digital design, and illustration, working as an illustrator, designer, art director and finally as design director for a group of 36 publications. I continue to freelance internationally as a designer and illustrator. In 2009, I decided (not due to redundancy) that I wanted to move away from work in publishing to find new successes in teaching, making and most honestly, to live a more varied creative life, for this I emigrated to Wales. In Pembrokeshire, I teach creative awareness and OCN art courses for adult learners, NEET, children of all ages and lead workshops county-wide. From my own studio, cheese and pickles, I lead intensive workshops which help to prepare individuals in their own careers in design an illustration. For my own creative expression, I work as a painter, printmaker and collage relief artist, drawing inspiration from my surroundings, medieval and Celtic art, Welsh language, history, and beliefs. I have been a lead artist for Cauldrons and Furnaces 2012, held an artist-in-residency, and show in public and private galleries. My work is held in private collections around the world.

Made in Roath

madeinroath is for anyone and everyone who’s interested in art, culture, community or just having fun, and we have people from all across the UK (and beyond) who travel to Roath to take part. Our annual festival takes place in October, when we host a week-long extravaganza of events and activities across all creative disciplines, showing the very best of local talent alongside some excellent national and international artists. We believe art and culture can enrich the lives of everyone, and so that’s why a lot of what we do takes art out of the traditional museum or gallery spaces and into the community.

Youth Arts Network Cymru

YANC is an organisation that brings together professionals delivering across the youth sector in Wales to share best practice and resources. YANC is an embryonic network which started life in response to the youth arts sector lacking any sort of cohesive thinking and sharing of practice across Wales. Initially the network was formed on the basis of various companies who were initially involved in a project. However this quickly grew as there was a genuine appetite amongst practitioners and organisations alike to develop practice and networks pan Wales. YANC has now become a genuinely pan Wales network which involves both Welsh and English speaking companies and individuals. It regularly hosts skills and practice sharing workshops across Wales as well as its biennial CASGLIAD conference.
