Eisteddfod AmGen to be published on AM

21 May 2020

With the first week of the Eisteddfod AmGen project drawing to a close, the Eisteddfod today announced that they will be working with AM to publish all the week’s content, so that people can look back at the activities in a simple and accessible way

The partnership starts this weekend, with all this week’s talks and sessions available to watch on the National Eisteddfod channel on AM from Friday evening.

Betsan Moses, Eisteddfod Chief Executive, said, "We are delighted to announce our partnership with AM. We hope that Eisteddfod AmGen will help to fill the artistic void over the coming months, and I believe that working with AM to provide an accessible platform for our work will be a great asset.

“We’ve had a great response to the sessions so far, and we’re very grateful to everyone, whether they’ve led a sessions or whether they’ve been sitting at home enjoying the coverage.  We’ll be developing the programme further over the coming weeks, and hope to provide something which will appeal to our various audiences.”

Speaking on behalf of AM, Alun Llwyd, Chief Executive of PYST, added, "Like everyone else, we were disappointed to hear that this year's National Eisteddfod had to be postponed, but we are pleased to see that the Eisteddfod is being creative and providing opportunities for people to get involved in the arts from home.

"As a digital platform in Wales, we welcome the fact that the Eisteddfod is leading the way in this area and are looking at the use of different platforms.  We’re looking forward to publishing the week’s various sessions together once a week on Friday evening.  We also hope that Eisteddfod fans will take the opportunity to explore the AM platform, finding all kinds of great content.

“We’ll be working with Eisteddfod AmGen and with the Eisteddfod itself over the coming weeks and months, and look forward to enjoying and sharing the programme every week.  Download AM by going to www.amam.wales/ambobdim.

The aim of Eisteddfod AmGen is to offer something for everyone, with a varied programme with the same eclectic mix as a visit to the Maes. The programme is announced every Friday afternoon.
