Tim Baker scoops major Arts Council creative wales award     

Tim Baker scoops major Arts Council creative wales award Creative Wales Awards give artists freedom, space and time to develop their skills and creativity.

Funded by The Arts Council of Wales, Creative Wales Awards of up to £25,000 are available every year, and in 2007/08, 16 artists will receive a total of £300,000. The Awards guarantee artists a livelihood, enabling them to take time out to experiment, innovate, and take forward their work. It's a chance to think, to branch out, to take risks - room to breathe.

“The Professional Theatre and Small Nations: the creative environment and the audience”

Tim is a bilingual writer and director. For the last ten years he has been Associate Director at Clwyd Theatr Cymru, where he has directed over 30 productions, written over 20 plans and adaptations and won a number of awards. He has also directed two projects for the National Theatre (London) and helped form the Catalan company, Frec a Frec, with whom he has directed six productions, still touring Catalonia. Tim is a founder member of the Art of Change project, an international cultural/theatre investigation, with whom he has led projects in New York, Catalonia, Tokyo and Mumbai. Tim recently directed Porth y Byddar for Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, and he is also the new Artistic Director of the National Youth Theatre of Wales.

Tim’s Creative Wales Award will enable him to investigate creative processes in theatre in small nations, which will be of benefit to his personal development, to the profession in Wales and Wales’s reputation internationally. Working with other professionals, Tim hopes to develop cross-cultural collaborations and projects. He is particularly interested in finding out to what extent the special sense of living and working in a small nation affects perceptions of self, others and those in larger nations. He also intends to offer some teaching within the small nations involved in the project, and in so doing, bring something of Wales to them.
