Are you interested in the visual arts – painting, sculpture, photography, digital media, printmaking, drawing, craft, textiles, etc; music, dance, theatre and opera; creative writing; public art; well-being through art;…the list goes on. The 5 Yr Planning work for Abergavenny and District has highlighted that the opportunity to make more of the Arts is seen as a priority by many, including a broad cross-section of community groups, councillors and the wider public.
So what would be the best use of the limited time we each might spare to promote the Arts together, beyond what we’re each doing already? Many people felt that we could communicate more and learn from and support each other better. Other ideas included joining together to use vacant premises for ‘pop up shops and exhibitions’ or perhaps starting to plan an arts festival of some sort, building on the success of the Abergavenny Writing Festival and the Crickhowell Open Studios weekend.
Would you like to get together to chat ideas through to promote the Arts in Abergavenny and the wider area? If so, please come The Chapel on Market Street on Wednesday 26th April at 7pm for our first meeting.
If you’re coming along please message Anna Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make sure there’s enough coffee to go around.
