Through this partnership, Creative Cardiff aims to raise awareness of Community Gateway’s work, connect more creatives with the project and engage more Grangetown residents with Creative Cardiff’s work.
Community Gateway is a Cardiff University engagement programme which brokers university and community partnerships in Grangetown. It has launched more than 48 community-university projects making connections between University staff, students and Grangetown residents to help bring community-led ideas to life. One of those projects is the redevelopment of Grange Pavilion from a former bowls pavilion into a community space for local residents. You can find out more about Grange Pavilion here.
To mark and celebrate the opening of the new Grangetown Pavilion, Creative Cardiff and Community Gateway will join forces to tell the story of the Pavilion.
Creative Cardiff will celebrate this journey by highlighting a selection of personal stories from Grangetown residents and bringing them to life with the help of Cardiff’s creative community as artwork and videos.
Creative Cardiff will also collaborate with Community Gateway in a number of other ways including co-hosting and promoting events and activities throughout 2020.
We’ll be sharing updates via our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn) and on this page as articles and blogs, but if you’d like to know more or get involved please get in touch.
