Craft network searches Hill and Valley for new members
A Caerphilly based network is extending its reach for new artists and crafters, as well as changing its name to Cwm a Mynydd Creatives.
Formerly known as Caerphilly Creatives, the group is re-branding to acknowledge the delivery of Cwm a Mynydd (Hill and Valley), a project that has received funding from the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020. This is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government, across not only Caerphilly but also the Llanhilleth and Cwm Wards of Blaenau Gwent.
The aim of the group is to promote the work of crafters and artists found across both counties and as a result, the newly branded Cwm a Mynydd Creatives are on the lookout for new members with a view to this year’s proposed ‘Arts Week’ and other exciting events and opportunities during 2016.
Cllr Ken James, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning and Sustainable Development said: “The Cwm a Mynydd Creatives provides an excellent opportunity for new and more established artists to take part in a number of fantastic events throughout 2016, which will help to promote both artists and their work. I look forward to seeing what the group produces during the forthcoming year.”
