Criw Celf student project

A major refurbishment of Penclawdd Health Centre was completed by Swansea Bay University Health Board in February 2020. As part of Criw Celf Raising the Bar programme, local Sixth Form Students created artwork especially for the waiting area. This Criw Celf programme was developed by Mission Gallery and funded by Arts Council Wales. Criw Celf offers young people a chance to learn new art skills alongside artists and industry professionals. The enamel panels are the result of this partnership between Swansea College of Art, UWTSD and Swansea Bay University Health Board.

I delivered the project brief to the students, introduced the concept of art in health contexts and installed the students’ finished panels. The enamelling work was lead by artist & UWTSD Lecturer Catherine Brown and Technician Colin Telford. It was facilitated by Megan Leigh, Learning & Engagement Coordinator, Mission Gallery.
