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.”
