An ambitious arts program designed to engage the local community is set to kick off in Connah’s Quay this week.

The project called ‘TheWord’ will see visual artists, live musicians, actors and world class break dancers performing in Connah’s Quay.

TheWord is being organised by Clwyd Theatr Cymru Theatre for Young People, known as the ‘Artists@Work’ Team and brings theatre, music and the arts right to the doorstep of the local community

The program will launch on Tuesday 20th January and promises the ‘weird and the wonderful’ will be out and about in Connah’s Quay with performances, workshops and installations in shops, schools, and outdoors.

Cllr Peter Tinman, Chair of Connah’s Quay Town Council said:

“We believe that this project will kick start a process of bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together and through hearing their voices and releasing their creativity a new energy and focus around the community will be born”

Tim Baker, the Director of the project said: 

“I’m very excited about this totally unique project and I’d like to ask the community of Connah’s Quay to stay alert and look out for us because you never know… we may be just around the corner. We’re easy to spot because as you can see, we have a slightly unusual uniform…so if you see us in our red and blue boiler suits, don’t be shy – come and talk to us!”

TheWord project is funded by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government and The National Lottery.
