Following the National Lockdown, Arts Connection – Cyswllt Celf staff in their home offices have worked hard to move all our workshop delivery online. Our online programme is funded by the Community Foundation in Wales and the Moondance Foundation. We are supported by the Arts Council of Wales. We have been using Zoom, to host well attended craft and music workshops with professional artists, bringing high quality arts tuition into family homes. Our annual project Masquerade, a drama and arts project for adults with learning disabilities is continuing as usual but online and we’ve been having great fun. As well as photo and film challenges, virtual open mic events community volunteers are now helping us shape two new projects. ‘Project Penpal’, where volunteers send letters and drawings to North Powys care home residents and ‘Journal to the Future’, an ongoing online collection of community experiences of Lockdown. Maybe you’d like to get involved? 

Our programme of workshops and events continues to grow and develop – ‘like’ our Facebook page for more information on all upcoming events, there’s something for everyone. 



Arts Connection – Cyswllt Celf are asking you – members of our community in North Powys and Wrexham to communicate your experiences of lockdown with us. We will compile your multimedia experiences to create a digital scrapbook online called ‘Journal to the Future’, archiving your thoughts and creations.

Are you journaling? Writing a blog? Sharing pictures on Instagram? Recording songs or thoughts through YouTube or Facebook? Send us your short stories, songs, blogs, vlogs, artworks, photography, performances – the sky is the limit! We want to hear your thoughts and experiences of lockdown:

•             What new skills are you learning?

•             Can we see your new painting?

•             Written a song on lockdown? Let’s hear it!

•             Who or what has made you laugh?

•             What have you tried for the first time?

•             What gives you hope?


Help us write our ‘Journal to the Future’, where we come together to celebrate communal creativity and resilience.
