Naomi ChiffiDirector of Collaboration
Hi, I'm Naomi
I lead on projects throughout Wales on behalf of TEAM. My job is to offer people access to a wide range of artistic and creative experiences in their localities and to provide an open door to those people who might think theatre isn’t for them. The power for shaping a nation's theatre belongs to the people and it's my job to listen to and collaborate with communities so that their needs, hopes and ideas are threaded through every aspect of our work. For me, creativity means connection.
If you've always wanted to try your hand at performing, writing, directing, poetry, comedy, music or dance but just don't know where to begin; if you're passionate about your community and want to find new ways of bringing people together or if you just want to arrange a brilliant, bonkers party then I'm the one to speak to!
The theatre landscape of Wales is unique – the arts here is borne from communities and working-class voices – it is essential, if we are to connect with and be a voice for the nation, that we embrace this vital part of our heritage and make it central to all of our work; not an additional activity, but the core. This is why I do what I do.
