Winner of ‘Outstanding Impact in Culture and the Arts’ at the Swansea University Impact Awards. 

To engage with the Connected Communities Project please contact Kate Spiller, Project Co-ordinator: k.spiller@swansea.ac.uk

The project develops community-focused research projects and activities that examine, celebrate and share the legacy and history of the Lower Swansea Valley and communities across Wales. The project offers an exciting opportunity for members of local community and Swansea University researchers and professional partners to work together on interdisciplinary projects, heritage activities and community-focused research. 

We continue to grow….Additional researchers, professional partners and community groups have joined the project to collaboratively design community-focused research including projects on the history of disability and the medical and digital humanities and to support events and festivals lead by Swansea University in areas such as theatre studies, creative writing, heritage tourism and the interpretation of the historic environment.
