Individuals & organisations involved in CIVIC CARDIFF.
Links included where possible/appropriate.
Anna Barratt (Swansea)
Anna will challenge possibilities and visual poetry, encouraging us to be active participants and making poets of us all. Her psycho geographical journeys with students and school groups, will use art and poetry to occupy and respond to the city.
Owen Griffiths (Copenhagen/Swansea) https://www.aboutreconnection.com/
Owen will make an intervention into the city architecture. A social space as part of the CIVC program of events and collaborative actions with Civic and Cardiff colleagues. In Cardiff he will create a new response to be shown during the festival, forming part of an archive and creating a legacy.
Jason&Becky (Swansea) https://www.jasonandbecky.co.uk/
J&B will create a soundscape, leading groups around Cardiff to experience the city as a reinvented place. They will extend participants sensory understanding through sound walks that investigate their perceptions of the city against a backdrop of popular culture.
Bella Kerr (Cardiff/London) https://www.bellakerr.com/
Bella will consider an issue often voiced about the city – that of a front room/back stairs duality expressed in terms of locations, routes and the organisation of built structures. Journeys between ‘landmark’/historical buildings and those that support or describe the city in other ways, in the company of artists, architects and others will enable the work to cross-reference the questions ‘What is History?’ and ‘What is the role of Architecture?’
