Connected Communities Festival – Short Film Now Available / Community Engagement and Research News
I am delighted to update everyone that a short film documenting the AHRC Connected Communities Festival that took place at the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks on June 25th is now available to view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9zq9Ub3xq0&feature=youtu.be
Made by our colleagues at the College of Arts and Humanities at Swansea University and contributed to by the Connected Communities team and community partners, the film discusses the many community research projects that the Connected Communities project supports and how we collaboratively continue to research and celebrate the heritage and history of the Swansea Valley.
The film also showcases the diverse range of community-focused and led activities, projects and future initiatives that will take place at the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks as the site enters into a new phase of development focused on creating a vibrant, multi-purpose place for work, education, leisure, and commercial activity in and around this hugely important industrial heritage site. For further information on the exciting developments at the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks please visit the website here: www.hafodmorfacopperworks.com
Also, Taliesin Arts Centre , in conjunction with its Associate artist Owen Griffiths and young people Hillside Secure Unit in Neath, are working on an arts project focused on food , growing and cooking . This project may also extend into activities in Usk. They are looking for an academic or postgraduate student who might be interested in looking at how these activities may form part of a research project.
We would also like to know whether anyone is interested in looking at the impact of the Vetch Veg project on community cohesion and involvement of residents from a BME background: www.vetchveg.co.uk
Hope you’re having a wonderful summer,
