Meet at The CIVIC Base (Cardiff Story)
Sunday 2 November 2014, 2 – 5pm
David Martin, a Hungarian-Jewish writer and author of the novel Tiger Bay (1946), played an instrumental role in introducing the Polish-Jewish émigré artist Josef Herman to Wales. Herman decided to stay, living in Ystradgynlais from 1944 to 1955. Using this link as a starting point, the event draws on archival and contemporary material to excavate connections between Tiger Bay, Ystradgynlais and the life, work and times of Josef Herman.
Exploring existing stories and mapping new narratives, the walk culminates in a film screening at the CMC@Loudoun Square, Plas Iona, Butetown, Cardiff CF10 5HW.
