Cymunedau Cysylltiedig: Working with the Community to Develop Local Heritage Projects and Research
This website provides a gateway to the project’s on going work, local news, volunteering opportunities and events including:
The project, supported by the Arts Humanities Research Council (AHRC), seeks to develop community-focused collaborative research and to support currently funded projects and local community activities. Seven Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) projects that focus on the history and heritage of the communities of the Swansea Valley are currently underway that have great value and a positive impact for the local communities.
Connected Communities will also enhance a major heritage-led urban regeneration project centred on the Swansea Valley. The regeneration project – Cu @ Swansea – is being led by Professor Huw Bowen in partnership with the City and County of Swansea and will breathe new life into the landscape and communities of the Lower Swansea Valley, with the aim of creating a world-class industrial heritage site. For information on the Cu@Swansea Project please visit: The World of Welsh Copper Website.
