On Saturday 12th March you will notice a change in Penygraig.
As part of artist Rabab Ghazoul’s community-led work for It’s art but it’s not, various phrases, statements and slogans will be visible in different parts of the town. Look out for posters – on billboards, the sides of buildings, noticeboards, doorways…
These word concoctions are the result of a project with young people at Valleys Kids. We’ve been exploring our relationship to the surrounding environment, local landmarks, our sense of belonging, power and decision making! The texts you’ll see dotted around are drawn from conversations we’ve had with each other and with local people. We’ve explored different ways of working with words and language to create a temporary installation for the town.
Please feel free to join our walk!
11am – 12pm, Saturday 12th March / Meeting point: 10:30am at Soar / 1 Cross Street, Penygraig, CF40 1LD
