A Fine Beginning: Made in Wales Exhibition at Arcade Cardiff
A Fine Beginning is an open Welsh photography collective, established by James O Jenkins with the ambition to develop a platform to discover and showcase contemporary photography being made in Wales today.
The collective launched with a publication in May 2013 at the publishing weekend of the inaugural Diffusion: Cardiff International Festival of Photography. The issue showcased the work of four of the current members; Gawain Barnard, Jack Latham, Abbie Trayler-Smith and James O Jenkins. In foregrounding photography in Wales, the festival provided an opportune moment to launch the first instalment of A Fine Beginning.
A Fine Beginning aims to offer a platform to photographers making work in Wales to have their photography seen and appreciated in Wales and beyond.
‘A Fine Beginning: Made in Wales‘ is at Arcade Cardiff on 14th March 2014 (to 30th March). The exhibition will show work from the collective as well as selected images from work featured on their blog. Please join us.

FORUM is an informal, monthly event for early career artists, students and graduates. It is a platform for practitioners from various disciplines to exchange ideas, experience and opinions on visual culture.
FORUM is diverse in its nature and has no fixed form. Each event will have its own premise, which will provide a catalyst for discussion on a range of issues in the context of contemporary arts practice.
Every month we will invite artists to show or discuss new or unfinished works that relate to the month's theme in an informal setting, for feedback and discussion. Get in touch if you'd like to share your work!
This blog is where we post up all FORUM's activity and things we want to shout about. Email us to submit any links, opinions or questions and to promote any events you are involved in.
