It's Art But It's Not Community Consultants
We carried out initial research and development work in Penygraig. This stage was crucial to highlight the real value of the creative conversations as a way of engaging people, giving individuals the space and opportunity to contribute their voice to the process and support our drive towards a self-defining community.
A group of community consultants, picked by Valleys Kids, including two youth art workers, worked with Rabab Ghazoul to further explore and map their immediate home area considering both the inspirational and the unsafe areas, and to open up this conversation across the community.
Rabab and the community consultants ran a series of creative workshops, conversations and interventions designed to engage a broad range of people in the process, to raise awareness of the possibilities of the project, identify key groups of people for longer term participation and be an innovative and high quality experience.
