SARGY MANN: see more > see different > see better is the centerpiece of part two of the season Yn cynnwys ni? Does that include us? This follows on from the dynamic series of social gatherings, performances, practical activities, conversations and debates that formed the first part; a multi-artform programme of free events presented by artists, facilitators and activists – some who identify as disabled and some who don’t.

does that include us? / yn cynnwys ni? is the culmination of a year-long period of curatorial mentoring offered by g39 to artist-curator Gail Howard, and forms part of the Tu Fewn project supported by DASH and Disablity Arts Cymru. A Tu Fewn symposium is planned for later on in the year, please www.dasharts.org for updates.

21 August 2016
October is coming up, and it's busier than ever as Cardiff Contemporary gets underway for its third edition. Drawing together international and Wales-based artists to charge the city streets, galleries, forgotten spaces and communities, the loose theme of ‘communication’ underpins alot of the work.

Throughout August this year visual artists and makers across the city will be opening their studios to the public. Visit the website for details of individual studio events.

Cardiff With Culture : Visioning the City

7 September 2016, 12:30 - 6 pm

In January 2016, the arts community in Cardiff launched the Cardiff Without Culture? Campaign. The aim was to reverse intended cuts of £700,000 to the city’s arts budget. The campaign succeeded.

CARDIFF WITH CULTURE: VISIONING THE CITY is a day of exploration and dialogue. Speakers and contributors joining us include Professsor Paul Haywood, Deputy Dean of Middlesex School of Art an Design; Freee Art Collective; Made in Roath; Cardiff People’s Assembly; and contributions from Cardiff residents and artists who were involved in the campaign…

This is not just a day for artists or people working in the arts. It’s for anyone interested in issues of culture, austerity and sustainability. It’s about exploring the relationship between art and activism, and asking what ‘activism’ might look like.

There will be workshops, presentations and discussion. Booking required. Tickets are available on the 'more info' link below (if you can't make the day, there is a social in the evening that is open and free to all!)

Freya Dooley - Rhythms and Disturbances

In the Unit#1 space at g39 we are pleased to commission a new work by Freya Dooley for Cardiff Contemporary. Freya works with words, voice and collage, using cut-ups of found and borrowed texts, literature, letters, snippets of conversations and earworm pop songs. Her recent work incorporates multi-layered aural textures containing repetitive forms and overlapping rhythms.
