Connected Communities Exhibition – September 20th, National Waterfront Museum


Connected Communities: Researching the Industrial and Post-Industrial Communities of the Swansea Valley

The White Wall Gallery

The National Waterfront Museum, Swansea

4-6pm, 20th September, 2013

This special event will celebrate the success of local Heritage Lottery-funded projects and community-based research as part of the Swansea University ‘Connected Communities’ project.

The event will highlight the community history and heritage that these projects focus on and the positive impact these local projects have on Swansea communities. The exhibition will also showcase the exciting potential for such community-based research to shape the future development of the Swansea Valley; including the regeneration of the Hafod and Morfa-Copperworks.

The Connected Communities project, led by Professor Huw Bowen, continues to build sustainable links between Swansea University and local community groups and continues to support and develop local community research.

The exciting event will include short talks by representatives from six local Heritage Lottery Fund community projects that, as part of the Connected Communities project, are producing exciting and diverse project outcomes.

The exhibition will remain in the museum and open to the public until November 17th.
