The next Friends meeting will be on 31st October from 10-12 noon at the National Waterfront museum.
The meeting will focus on the proposals for interpretation and art for the site. We have focussed on eight human stories which will be represented through sculpted panels and audio recordings. We would like to hear suggestions for any other stories that you think need to be told at the site, either now or in future phases of the project. An interpretation plan has been completed which will be available through our website before the meeting.
We will also provide a general progress update and plan in some work days that some people have requested to get involved in keeping the vegetation under control.
We have a new Facebook page which has some stunning photographs taken of the site this summer by photographer James Davies. If you are on face book please come and find the page. More photos of the progress on the site can be seen on our flickr site detailed below.
Hafod-Morfa Copperworks Draft Interpretation Plan
The interpretation of the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks site represents the shared histories of many people in the Swansea area and so we think it is important that you get a chance to input your ideas into the development of the plan for the site.We have written eight stories about the lives of characters involved in the site and presented this in the interpretation plan. Perhaps there are others that you would like to see, either now or in the future. The plan also proposes some artwork. This has been designed with the help of children at HafodPrimary School.
We particularly welcome input on the following.
- Are the eight character stories as good as they can be (please see appendix 1 on page 30)
- Have you got any other stories that you might wish to contribute?
- What other words, information, images, statistics can we include in the sites features, see 9.3.4 on page 24 -27
You can view the interpretation plan here until 31st October and/or attend a presentation at 10am, 31st October 2013 at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea.
