The Learning Links International team work with a range of Creative Artistes and we would love to hear from you!
Our flexible approach means we are able to customise workshops for schools and community events, working on a range of themes.
Because of current issues, we also set up Zoom training and workshops.
Some examples of folks we have worked with:
Colin Daimond: Colin offers a range of drumming workshops, with engagement by all, based around understanding of different styles of drumming. Colin also is a specialist in the South American matial art of Capoiera which was developed by enslaved Africans working for the Portuguese and Spanish slave owners. Colin is Welsh speaking.
Joy Roxborough: Joy is an award winning Jamaican poet and short story writer, she also tells the African stories of Anancy the spider, bringing him to life for some fun and laughter! Joy is based in the Midlands and travels up to North Wales regularly.
Rhys Trimble: Rhys is a Welsh poet studying for his PhD. He has travelled extensively performing his poetry in Europe, toured in Jamaica and was recently on the Arts Council Wales tour to India.
Yasus Afari: Yasus has been a regular visitor to Wales, travelling from Jamaica to share his poetry and stories in schools, colleges, communities and community events.
