We are a Cardiff- based arts collective whose aim is to provide a platform for talented, emerging artists to share their work and ideas with the public and artists alike. Although Cardiff has art galleries that play their part in the city’s cultural life, we feel that they do not give the adequate support needed for students and emerging artists. The arts can be a tough place to put your future prospects in, so support is needed from an early stage in creative discovery.
Whether stepping straight out of art school or ten years into a self- taught practice, we support artists from all backgrounds. We promote a diverse range of artistic mediums from video, painting, sculpture, music, performance, theatre and installation based work. The artists we advocate often have a strong level of craft-based ethos in their practice. This is an element we value very highly within the collective as it pertains to a strong sense of community through the sharing of skills. We believe that art should be accessible for all.
We organise pop up exhibitions in disused or empty shops, giving new life to the places others have discarded bringing something fresh and unusual to the high street. We have also taken artwork to the streets in the form of a ‘Walking Gallery’ as well as our Empty Walls street art project and numerous mural paintings.
We are a non-profit collective and we want to get as many people involved and creatively uplifted by our events as possible.If you have any questions, ideas or want to get involved, don't hesitate to get in touch!
