Cerbyd is unique in its’ aim to link artists across Wales through travel, activity, collaborations and dialogue. The project will enable 10 selected artists to get to know one another while making creative responses to their country and the communities encountered.
Cerbyd will provide a creative map of Wales, making it easier to identify numerous important communities and artist groups. It will also benefit those wishing to work in Wales, by bringing contemporary art practice and new audiences into rural areas.
The project will develop further the critical network that is growing throughout Wales, while focusing on the long-term goals of cultural and critical dialogue, in addition to the artist’s professional development.
Cerbyd aims to be a potential catalyst for engaging new audiences, for sharing networks to mutual advantage and for cross pollination of ideas and approaches for artists and community groups.
