Get to know us – Rhys Gwilym


In this edition of the newsletter we’ll be getting to know Rhys Gwilym, one of Arloesi Gwynedd Wledig’s new Senior Project Officers. Rhys might be a familiar face to some already as our previous Administration Officer.

What were you doing before joining Arloesi?

I was studying business at Aberystwyth University. I graduated in July 2018 and then worked at Cwrw Llyn over the summer before starting with Arloesi in September 2018 as an Administration Officer.

Which projects are you currently working on?

At the moment I’m working on the project Ffiws, which is a Makerspace located on the High Street in Porthmadog. This is a very exciting project and I’m looking forward for the space to be open so everyone can use it. It’s a great opportunity to develop a community of makers by using an empty shop on the High Street in Gwynedd. Another project I’m working on is the Electric Community Car Project. Carwyn and Carwen have arrived and in a few weeks one will be going to Bethesda and the other to Abergynolwyn to be used as community cars. The cars will be in the community for a year and I’m looking forward to seeing how the cars will be used.

What are your interests?

I like walking, cooking (usually Mexican food), listening to music, I love films especially Marvel, and socialising.

If you could invite 5 people to a dinner party, dead or alive, who would you choose? 

Louis Theroux, Captain America, Liam Gallagher, Lee Mack, David Attenborough.
