From Tuesday June 16 – Monday June 29, The Red House in Merthyr will house ‘Graphic Moves’, an exhibition of film, sculpture, and sound created by young artists from Merthyr Tydfil. Graphic Moves is part of the Productive Margins programme.
The event is part of a series of exhibitions co-produced by young people and the artists. At this event, young artists from Merthyr have created exhibition pieces about their relationship with their town and landscape.
Dr Gareth M. Thomas, a Research Associate in the School of Social Sciences, says of the event: “The exhibition is a fantastic outlet for young people from Merthyr Tydfil to demonstrate their talents and highlight the relationship they have with their town and their landscape. It also provides a different perspective of Merthyr, a place often subjected to unfair and disparaging portrayals in the wider media. This is one of many exhibitions going on over the next few months and we’re really pleased to be working with young people to engage with, and draw upon, their collective knowledge, resources and capabilities”.
You can see the exhibition at The Red House from June 16th (18:30-) to June 29th (times vary according to the day). It will also be displayed at the local launch of Cardiff University’s ‘Strong Communities, Healthier People’ project in the summer.
