Young Critics North Wales is based at Venue Cymru, Llandudno. It is supported by the Arts Council of Wales and is the first scheme of its kind in North Wales.
The scheme aims to give young people aged 16-25 the chance to learn some of the skills of an arts critic.
Our Young Critics, who all live or study in North Wales, attend performances of all genres – opera, ballet, musicals, live screenings etc – at Venue Cymru or Theatr Colwyn and later on write up reviews which are published here and sometimes in an online version of a regional newspaper.
Their work is continually assessed by mentors as a portfolio is built up.
They also have the opportunity to attend specialist writing workshops to further develop their skills.
