A core part of the vision of Aberystwyth Arts Centre is that we believe in the power of the arts to transform society and to change and enrich lives. With that in mind, although our doors are currently shut, we still want to try and share with you some of the best theatre, dance, opera, art and more to enjoy at home. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter too for more updates and links (and competitions!). Some of our Creative Learning tutors are also running online groups on Facebook for their students - contact the creative learning team for more information! Have you been enjoying these resources? Please let us know any feedback you have about online content during this lockdown period by emailing us. Thank you.
