Theatr Clwyd has appointed HAROLD FINLEY, LEUSA LLEWELYN and SIOBHAN JONES as new trustees.
Finley, who is currently Executive Director of Stage Directors UK, is a writer, director and producer and co-founder of the Black, Queer & Fierce! arts festival. He is on SOLT/UK Theatre’s anti-racism and inclusion committees and Ambassador Theatre Group’s Diversity Forum.
“Visiting Theatr Clwyd I was struck by the warmth of all I encountered, the natural beauty, the lovely performance spaces and the exciting plans and challenges ahead. Theatr Clwyd is an inspiring example for producing world-class art beyond the boundaries of major cities,” he said.
Llewelyn is Interim Joint CEO for Literature Wales and curates and hosts the annual Tŷ Newydd National Writing Centre’s programme of courses and activities. She praised the theatre’s outreach work in the local community and its “pioneering and ambitious” vision.
Jones has extensive experience in commercial management, recruitment and corporate partnership. She said she was impressed both with the theatre’s quality of productions and with its “engagement with the community and local children, even throughout the Covid pandemic”.
