We have a busy beginning to 2018… and some exciting projects happening in the village and nearby.

Dancing in the Gallery is curated by Simon and is a new partnership between the galleries Oriel Davies, Oriel Myrddin and Maynard. Established to provide a context for dance artists and galleries in Wales to investigate the possibilities of the live medium of dance made for the gallery. This initiative will nurture a creative dialogue between dance artists and galleries, and a commitment to the occurrence of dance in these public spaces.
