Mudlarking in St Peter's and St Paul's
Artists Helen Clifford, Gail Howard and Clare Charles were commissioned as artists in residence in St Peter’s and St Paul’s from January to September 2020.
They have been running the successful community based festival MadeinRoath for 10 years, and this is their opportunity so see if the techniques they have developed there will work in a new location.
They will be spending time in the area most weeks and will be running a series of community engagement activities and events during this period. We will be sharing details of these via email and social media.
“We’re keen to get to know the area, and there will be a period of community consultation and learning before we take the project forward in 2020.
“Our vision for St Peter’s and St Paul’s is a re-imagining of buildings and spaces, both domestic and public, and the possibilities they present. Our philosophy is one of repair and reuse, and we will look to utilise existing DIY skills within the community, alongside and in collaboration with professional local craft and tradespeople. Throughout the project we will be offering creative opportunities for all, that will leave a long-term legacy for the whole community.
“We would like to invite people to open ended, social events to talk about how community members would like to be involved - and we welcome input from all ages and abilities across the area. Looking forward very much to working in St Peter’s and St Paul’s in 2020, watch this space for updates.”
Whilst not in Roath, Helen, Gail and Clare will be known collectively as Paam (Provincial Anonymous Artists Mutual), inspired by the attribution label on a painting at the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum.
