BAFTA Roadshow with Place2Be arrives in Cardiff
This week, the BAFTA Roadshow joined forces with Place2Be to bring their 2022 roadshow to Cardiff.
Children at Gabalfa Primary School in Wales were treated to a special assembly and a presenting masterclass hosted by TV presenters Ben Shires (Dig Detectives, Officially Amazing) and Kia Pegg (The Dumping Ground). The assembly aimed to champion pupils' creativity and boost confidence. Gabalfa Primary school is currently celebrating their 10-year partnership with Place2Be.
The children were able to learn soft skills that are important for emotional wellbeing and career progression and participate in competitions and roundtable discussions.
BAFTA has been partnering with Place2Be since 2016 as part of its core charitable work to nurture and inspire the next generation of creative talent. In 2021, our partnership won the Action for Children's Arts (ACA) Outstanding Contribution to Children's Arts Awards.
The Roadshow exists to teach important life skills through film, games, and television. The activities on offer provide access to talent to raise awareness and provide positive, inspiring role models within the industry. They also signpost the potential careers on offer in the industry and encourage and increase the diversity of young people interested in a career in arts and media. In 2022, the Roadshow will work with seven Place2Be schools across the UK.
