For creative workers and those interested in the creative industries. Rhywbeth Creadigol? (Something Creative?) brings industry experts and workers together to discuss the topics that matter to them, with a focus on current creative industries research. Series 2 sees us taking the conversation online and looking at discussions relating to taking creative work and culture online. 

In the first episode of Rhywbeth Creadigol series 2, we talk to Dylan Huw, Creative Development Assistant with National Theatre Wales and Chief Operating Officer of cultural platform AM, Alun Llwyd. We discuss the ups and downs of streaming culture and taking the creative industries and entertainment online as well as digital burn-out and the future of theatre in the digital space. 

AM is a multi-media community that celebrates and shares Wales' cultural creativity and since launching in March the platform has gone from strength to strength. AM has streamed gigs and festivals like Tafwyl and a host of other cultural output including productions by National Theatre Wales like Go Tell The Bees. 

National Theatre Wales has launched Network alongside BBC Wales, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and the Sherman Theatre. Network is a new digital programme of work, designed to connect audiences, communities and theatre makers with opportunities to create and experience live, innovative theatre delivered via a digital stage.
