Creative and Therapeutic Artist
Date: 7-9th May 2021.
The pART of Pontypridd Art Trail is an annual exhibition by the latest graduates from the BA(Hons) Creative and Therapeutic Arts course at the University of South Wales, Treforest Campus, in partnership with local organisations, initiatives, businesses, venues and sites in Pontypridd. The Art Trail is an opportunity to honour and celebrate the wonderful place and people of Pontypridd who directly inspire the artwork created.
As the Community Artists, Participatory Artists and Socially Engaged Arts Practitioners of the future, we will be translating our artwork into something which actively encourages participation with the public. The exhibition will not only showcases our work, but will also provide a collection of resources and activities for the people of Ponty to enjoy. We consider accessibility and inclusivity at the heart of our practice, so the exhibition content can range from street art, outdoor sculpture, textiles, painting and photography, to videos with captions, soundscapes, flip books / zines, activity sheets, creative wellbeing packages, guided meditation, recipes and even more! It is the most current and relevant way for us to showcase our community-focused, creative skills, providing us with important tools and experience for future practice, with perhaps an even wider potential reach than a traditional Graduate Art Exhibition.
We hope you will note this date in your diaries and join us as we launch into our new careers in Art and Wellbeing.
