Are you part of the Global Majority and live in West Wales?
Join us on Sunday 24 September at Over the Rainbow, Tanygroes between 11am and 4pm for an introduction to the Voices from the Edge project, which celebrates global majority cultures and heritage in west Wales. There will be an opportunity to enjoy music, food, and art workshops all free of charge. An attendance fee and travel costs will be paid through the Association of Independent Museums and Welsh Government’s Collections grant.
The aim of the event is to take the first step towards improving understanding and developing stronger links between Ceredigion Museum and global majority communities. Together we can share different experiences of living in west Wales as well as sharing our individual and collective cultures with others.
If you can’t attend on the day, please get in touch for details of future events.
Rose Thorn, the Project Coordinator, said: "This event is part of a project which will create a creative partnership able to support other projects in the Museum in the future. It will ensure the presence of a global majority voice at Ceredigion Museum and improve access to Welsh culture and heritage."
Carrie Canham, Curator of Ceredigion Museum, added: "Voices from the Edge is the museum's first step to improve understanding of global majority people who live and work in rural west Wales. We hope that the project will enable us to give a voice to people from the global majority and make it easier to consult more widely on our work, giving everyone a sense of belonging".
Councillor Catrin M S Davies, Ceredigion Cabinet Member with responsibility for Culture, said: "We are very grateful to the Association of Independent Museums and the Welsh Government for their support for this project. This work will contribute to the Wales Anti-Racism Action Plan and our commitment as a County Council to equality and diversity. I'm looking forward to seeing how the project develops."
The first meeting of Voices from the Edge will be held at Over the Rainbow, Tanygroes, SA43 2JD on Sunday 24 September between 11am-4pm. To book a place or to find out more, contact Rose Thorn: firstname.lastname@example.org / 07815 678 762.
