Event Description

Birds offer human imagination mystery and beauty, of other lands, other ways of being, of resilience, of renewal. They are sign-bearers, omens. Twitter gives a new spin to the medieval alchemists' language of birds, which translated what was divine and of the air into the earth of humanity and the mundane. As the huge global industry of garden-bird nurture, led by the RSPB in the UK testifies, their presence makes us feel good. What important messages do they offer in creating a home that affirms all life for a sustainable future? And what inspiration and strength can we draw?

‘For the Birds’ is a pilot multi partner project led by experienced lead artist Jony Easterby, in collaboration with RSPB Ynys-hir in Powys and Aberystwyth Arts Center, Wales.


Drawing inspiration from and taking place at the exceptional Ynys-hir Reserve, a rare conservation space for the observation and protection of birds at the heart of Wales’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, it will take the form of a series of sound and light installation works and performances produced by Easterby, and a collective group of sound artists including Mark Anderson, Kathy Hinde and Esther Tew.

‘For the Birds’ is a pilot multi partner project produced by  lead artist Jony Easterby, with development support from National Theatre of Wales and Arts Council Wales produced in collaboration with RSPB Ynys-hir and Aberystwyth Arts Center.

Tickets and information from Aberystwyth Arts Center available from mid August.

Ticket price £14/£12 concessions

Transport from Aberystwyth and Machynlleth provided as part of the ticket price. Limited car parking with extra cost.
