Rethinking Wales: How cultural venues can survive and thrive


Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA)

The IWA’s #RethinkingWales series will explore the challenges we face because of Covid-19, and work out the opportunities for change.

An open, politically independent and inclusive space for discussion and debate is the best way to identify the challenges we face in Wales because of Covid-19, and work out where the opportunities for real change are.

We are well placed to bring those voices together, and the IWA #RethinkingWales series will explore how different sectors need to respond to this crisis and how we need to start thinking differently.

The next session will be taking place on Thursday, 11 June at 11 am. We will be emailing confirmed attendees on the morning of the 11th with details of how to join the Zoom call, please do check your junk inbox.

It will be an hour long panel discussion on Zoom chaired by IWA Director, Auriol Miller and attendees will be able to engage in debate and ask questions on the live chat.

This week’s session is in partnership with the Arts Council of Wales.

The topic of the discussion is how cultural venues can survive and thrive.

Joining us will be:

Gethin Evans – Artistic Director, Fran Wen

Graeme Farrow – Artistic Director, Wales Millennium Centre

Rabab Ghazoul – Artist and Founder & Director, Gentle/Radical

Gwennan Mair Jones – Director of Creative Engagement, Theatr Clwyd
