Over the past six years, fourteen artists have taken part in a residency programme, living in a remote cottage in Elan Valley for between one and six months. Watershed is the first time they will come together, to share their impressions and work with one another and with a wider community.

We want to

-Offer you, the local and artistic community, the opportunity to see what has happened in our residency programme over the past six years.

-Bring together past resident artists to reveal their individual and collective experiences in and of this land

-Generate conversations about the value of artist residencies, and arts in a rural context.

You will hear from the artists involved, follow them on site specific explorations of Elan, and join in the discussion.

We have a limited number of community tickets available for this event. It is free with food and drinks provided. Book your ticket here.
