Event Description

During the summer of 2012, artists Matt White and Katrina Kirkwood scoured the streets and hills of the Ebbw Fach from Brynmawr to Sofrydd in search of the real voices of the valleys. They met Bill the Blue who talked about the fear of expressing a political view, Joelene at the roadside snack-bar was fearful about future education and entrepreneurship opportunities, John the ex-steel showed us the highest golf tee in the UK and Derek the sheep talked about life on a remote farm, ‘just shut the door, poke the fire and say bugger it!’, he said. Their stories, comments and photographs were transformed into short films that tell the world who they really are. Some of the stereotypical attitudes held by people both inside and outside of the valley were challenged, and sometimes confirmed, but the most important objective was to utilise real valleys voices to create discourse and debate. A blue-print for change?
