Criw Creu is a national project for pupils with additional learning needs, led by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru with support from Literature Wales and Urdd Gobaith Cymru.

In 2022, pupils from four secondary schools were part of the project: Ysgol Bro Pedr, Criw Hwb from Ysgol Tryfan, Bangor, Life Skills pupils from Ysgol Penweddig Aberystwyth and a group from Ysgol Plasmawr, Cardiff.

Casi Wyn, Bardd Plant Cymru, held workshops with the pupils to create original pieces of poetry. Drama workshops were led by Sian Elin, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru; animation workshops led by Sioned Medi Evans from the SMEI and also recording music with musicians and officers of the Urdd, Marged Gwenllian, Osian Rhys, Caryl Griffiths, Seimon Thomas and Lewys Wyn Jones.

Here are three videos created by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru to showcase the pupils’ creative work and celebrate the project:
