It’s Art But It’s Not – Penygraig Art Installations

 

 

IPP Text Project FLYER DRAFTRCT Homes, Valleys Kids and Artes Mundi are currently collaborating on an exciting and innovative regeneration project called “it’s art but it’s not” as part of the Arts Council of Wales, Ideas, People and Places scheme. For the past year, a group of young people has been working with a contemporary artist Rabab Ghazoul, exploring the local environment, local history, dialogues amongst the group and conversations with local residents and businesses in the area.

The result is an amazing and inspirational installation of posters and billboards created by the group, which will feature in sites around the town. Rabab Ghazoul says, “The young people I’ve been working with have created some very subtle, touching, and sophisticated work.”

The installation was launched at a lovely event on Saturday March 12th 2016.

 If you would like to see the work there are maps available from our local shops, Penygraig Central Office at 1, Cross Street, Penygraig and the Soar Centre or you can download them here from our website.

The work is creating a mini sensation locally… do come and see for yourselves.
