Made in Roath, the festival, is an artist-led, free event which aims to take art out of the gallery and into the wider community, allowing a larger and broader audience to access the wealth of creative talent in our neighbourhood whilst maintaining a standard of excellence, reflecting the contemporary art scene in Cardiff and South Wales.

It showcases the work of emerging and established artists, makers, musicians, writers and performers, who use the whole of Roath as the venue, including domestic, commercial, public and overlooked or disused spaces.

Made in Roath offers residents and visitors an opportunity to engage in the arts through a dynamic programme of exhibitions, residencies, collaborations with community groups, workshops and performances.

Made in Roath – The Book

Our Latest publication is the result of a collaboration between ourselves and 40 contributors involved with Cardiff’s Made in Roath Festival.

The festival is held in various guises throughout the year. This year the main event happens next week – links below.

Made-in-Roath-Volume-one-cover-frontMade in Roath, The Book, contains a mixture of poetry, prose, observations and photographs and provides the opportunity to take a peek into the minds, individual and collective, of the uniquely creative inhabitants of the multi-layered area of Cardiff known as Roath.

The book was conceived during a chat with the festival’s Poetry and Literature Coordinator – Christina Thatcher not long after last year’s events; and, eventually, due to Christina’s gentle persistence and hard work in collecting the contributions and editing them, the resulting book has finally manifested itself and is available worldwide – and in particular in Roath.

There’s going to be a mini-soft-launch for the book sometime at the end of next week, on Sunday 18th, the last day of this year’s festival I think. More details will be available from:
