Artis Community work in partnership with Drive – an organisation providing specialist support to a range of people who live with additional learning needs, such as learning disabilities and autism. We are pleased to be facilitating their community choir which is led by Tutor Wendy and Accompanist Gareth. The choir meets weekly in Trehafod and has grown over the past year to over 50 participants! The Choir perform at regular DRIVE Ltd events such as festive sharings and AGM’s. The choir recently performed as part of a community ‘Light up the Night’ event in December 2018 organised by Artis Community in St Catherines Church Pontypridd singing alongside other community choirs and families.
We are working with Drive to develop further opportunities for working together and will shortly be starting a new project funded by Age Cymru Gwanwyn Festival called ‘Wing to Fly’.
