Settlement, Made in Roath

What a fantastic day! Cycled to Roath, which was a good challenge. And then had a walk through a man made nature reserve, with wonderful information about its history. As well as having fascinating debates with the other creators at the event. We talked about community projects and how to make them work, or what has gone wrong if they don’t. We also debated the value of the projects, be it in the art that is created at the event or through people enjoyment. It was really riviting to be a part of.

After this was a lovely lunch cooked by the caters at spit and sawdust skate part, and mask making. While making the masks we watched as the main sculpture for the event went up. Unfortunately though I forgot to to a photography of both the mask and the sculpture. Below are links to blog posts on the event and the Made in Roath website, with more information on this and other events.

The whole day was really inspiring and made me think about a lot of different thinks, especially the value of art and the debate of authorship when events like this, or charity events do happen.
