“Communities First” is the Welsh Assembly Government’s Flagship programme designed to enable communities to begin to make the positive changes that they want and shape the place they live in. The Community Project, on behalf of the Adamsdown Forum, will take on the responsibility of working with residents and local service providers to deliver on this opportunity by arrangement with Cardiff County Council and the Assembly.

This short film was brought up in conversation during the recent discussion between Peter Fraser and Mark Durden on the 24th of March at Ffotogallery in Penarth. As it is an important reference to Peter's work, we have included some links to various media and follow up information.

Another point of reference mentioned on the night is an article by Gilles Deleuze entitled 'What children say'.

Clash of the Titans

An amazing selection of over 30 photographic book works and prints up for grabs on Thursday!

More info about this auction set up by final year students from Documentary Photography at the University of Wales, Newport can be found on the link below...


It will be hosted at Cardiff Arts Institute, near the National Museum - but sadly clashes with our March FORUM.

Those of you who were coming to FORUM - do not desert us! Kath's highly anticipated Lasting Colour performance will be taking place and we'll be going over all the print project plans!
