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.

Blackwood Miners' Institute

Blackwood Miners’ Institute (The ‘Stute) is a vibrant and professional theatre, and one of the busiest in the South Wales Valleys; it is also the only professional theatre in Caerphilly County Borough. Originally the building opened as a snooker hall that was owned by the Coal Industry and the Social Welfare Organisation. The first stones were laid in 1925 and it was paid for out of the Oakdale Miners’ wages at 3d a week. Original events staged in the building included tea dances, snooker/billiards, reading groups, rehearsals and union meetings for local miners. After falling into disrepair in the 1970’s-1980’s and following many of the local pit closures, the building was conveyed as a charitable trust in 1990 to Islwyn Council. It was refurbished and reopened in February 1992 as a community arts and entertainment venue thanks to funding from Islwyn Borough Council and the Welsh Office. The history alone gives the building a place at the heart of the community. In 2011/2012 a total revamp of the Blackwood Miners’ Institute commenced, with Caerphilly County Borough Council's Cabinet approving a three year programme of repairs to give the theatre a new bill of health. Today, The ‘Stute offers a wide range of events, including drama, dance, live music, opera, children’s literature and comedy, as well as providing a wide range of opportunities for people from all sectors of the community to take part in creative activities. Blackwood Miners’ Institute is part of Caerphilly County Borough Council and has recently been awarded Arts Portfolio status by Arts Council Wales.

NoFit State

NoFit State was founded in 1986 by five friends. During a politically charged time, in a recession, and as a creative reaction to the world around them, the circus was born. Thirty years later NoFit State still believes that the total outweighs the sum of the parts. The company lives together, works together, eats together, laughs and cries together – travelling in trucks, trailers and caravans and living and breathing as one community. This is what creates the spirit that is NoFit State and gives the work its heart and soul. Contemporary circus combines live music, dance, stage design, text, and film with traditional circus skills. It is rooted in the travelling community who turn up, pitch a tent, drum up an audience, and then leave with only flattened grass and a memory to show they were ever there. The circus are the strangers who live amongst us – and if we run away to join them we are throwing off our inhibitions, our conventions, the rules of settled society. We are taking to the road knowing that there is no destination - only a journey. Today, NoFit State is the UK’s leading large-scale contemporary circus company, producing professional touring productions and a wide variety of community, training, and education projects for people of all ages. Over the last six years NoFit State's touring productions have visited 15 different countries, played to audiences of over 250,000, have been critically acclaimed and won numerous prestigious international arts awards.

Dymphna D'Arcy

I am interested in the natural world and our role and relationship within it. I welcome the cross fertilsation of ideas which I explore through dance, performance, video, photography and digital media and embrace the unexpected consequential effects of time on place and and the influence of landscape/ environment on our identity. Through my practice I explore the unconscious shards of history that effects and influence the way we respond and relate to our environment. I am inspired by the transformative enigmatic quality of time. I like being on the brink between two zones, the in between space, suspended moments when the present becomes the past, a point of departure moving towards the future enabling me to refer back to history and understand the present before heading into the unknown. I explore the notion of place and non-place, transitional spaces, temporary space, transportable space and the permanent space. All this and more helps me make sense of the world.

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.
