The LLS-7 Big Skies Community Arts project will engage the community and schools in the creation of art works which tell the unique story of the Gwent Levels landscape. A community artist will be commissioned to develop and set up a series of workshops – some with schools and some for adults – to create imaginative creative artworks exploring different themes including footprints in the landscape (both physical and metaphorical!), sea levels and climate change and others which will be chosen by the communities themselves. The art works will be used in a series of small celebration events with the communities involved in their making. Check here for updates and if you’re interested in finding out more please contact Gavin!
