cwrdd â mi wrth yr afon
Inspired by networks that occur in nature which enable communities of plants and wildlife to thrive, share nourishment and send cross species alerts, cwrdd â mi wrth yr afon aims to intersect, overlay and highlight connecting threads between art, the land and people living in North Wales.
Gradually taking shape as a regular club represented by local communities of Conwy, native plants and artist Frances Disley, cwrdd â mi wrth yr afon has been active since spring 2022 as a nomadic collaboration between human and non-human networks connected via the afon Conwy and its tributaries.
During the programme, the club took part in rural encounters in Capel Curig, Coed Hafod and RSPB Cowny, and workshops at Menter Iaith, Llanrwst and Conwy Culture Centre, where the club slowed down and exchanged knowledge and histories with and around the plants living in the three sites.
This summer, cwrdd â mi wrth yr afon will inhabit the Project Space and invites the wider public into the project through a presentation of film, sculpture, textiles and participatory activities.
MOSTYN offers its sincere thanks to all the project collaborators: Iona, Myfanwy, Sheila, Lynzi, Irene, Janey, Mair, Eirlys, Sharon, George, Jim, Delyth and Rhiannon.
