YANC is an embryonic network which started life in response to the youth arts sector lacking any sort of cohesive thinking and sharing of practice across Wales. Initially the network was formed on the basis of various companies who were initially involved in a project. However this quickly grew as there was a genuine appetite amongst practitioners and organisation’s alike to develop practice and networks pan Wales. YANC has now become a genuinely pan-Wales network which involves both Welsh and English speaking companies and individuals. It has had a host of skills/practice sharing workshops across Wales. We held our first ever CASGLIAD 2015 conference which we will continue to offer in future years.
