Sybil Crouch

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Sybil Crouch, formerly the Head of Cultural Services and Director of Taliesin Arts Centre at Swansea University, has died.

Sybil had been responsible for shaping Taliesin Arts Centre into the successful, innovative and community focused centre that it is today. Her drive and passion for everyone to participate in and enjoy the arts, was an inspiration to artists, performers and all those who were fortunate enough to work with her.

Sybil brought exciting work to Swansea and the region, from Dance Days and the Primary Dance Project, to the Cultural Olympiad and the spectacular Now the Hero World War One commemoration.

Sybil was also key to the building of a permanent home for the Egypt Centre at Swansea University, – which continues to win awards for its inclusive approaches to volunteering and through its work enabling school pupils to access museum collections and activities through school visits and activities.

Sybil retired from her role in March last year, and we owe her thanks for many things, but overall for being a passionate believer in the power of the arts and culture to improve and transform lives.

Sybil will be missed greatly by all at Taliesin.
