Addo have been busy over the summer working with Partneriaeth Corwen Partnership, Denbighshire County Council, Cadwyn Clwyd and Arts Council of Wales on ‘Re-imagining Corwen’, an arts-led regeneration project in Corwen.

‘Ideas People Places’ funding from the Arts Council of Wales allowed for the delivery and planning of a dynamic arts programme for Corwen, working with a range of artists to engage the community and build an audience for high quality arts in the town. This included project work by three artists groups, arts-led consultation activities, the production of films, photographs and models, culminating in the Rural Works seminar held in June 2014 and subsequent publication.

The Rural Works publication was developed following the seminar, where artists discussed the nature of arts practice in relation to artists’ residencies and artist-led regeneration projects.  An invited audience of arts practitioners, regeneration professionals and academics contributed to the debate.  The book contains essays from: Camp Little Hope, an artist collective based largely in the USA and artists in residence in Corwen; Matt Baker, founding member of the Stove Collective in Scotland; Awst & Walther, an artists partnership based in Wales and Berlin; and Paul Haywood, Deputy Dean of Middlesex University.

Rural Works was published in August 2014.  Copies are free (+£2.50 contribution towards post & packing).
