Caerphilly Tonypandemonium workshop

I had a great day today exploring Tonypandemonium with Sean, Tony and Hayley who are part of an insertion programme by Peer Mentoring Wales and Employment Support Service in Caerphilly.

None of my small group had- apparently-done any theatre but they were amazing and surprised themselves with their capacity to improvise and invent amazing lies, Sean became one of the character of the play with endless stories, Tony the…

Sheikh Said Hassan Ismail

It is with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of Sheikh Said Hassan Ismail, Imam at Cardiff Mosque. A foremost scholar and religious leader in Cardiff, the reach of his wisdom and generosity of spirit went much further than Muslims and Cardiff.

His work in uniting people of different faiths to build shared communities will live on, and his willingness to engage with people of all different walks of life and give time to listen and share experiences will always be remembered…

Mine Research part II

We have spent 2 consecutive days with Pete, Rob, Gerald, Ian, Martin, Bob, Jake, John, Des, Russ, Mike and Bedrock and it has been glorious. I now know how to prepare the lamps and vaguely manage to work my way around the surface.

It has been quite immersive and I am starting to think more coalface than millions of years. 

The repetition of the daily tasks, machinery checks and tour rhythm have somehow shifted my attention from the colossal dormant coal seam,…

The Mine Research. Part 1.

Since I moved to Wales 2 years ago, I went 5 times to Big Pit in Blaenafon.

At first I thought it was the going down the mine experience that attracted me so I drove to Dolaucothi gold mine. I managed to shoot a short video there, echoing some of the visual experiences of Big Pit but it wasn't the same. I missed them. The ex miners, their gestures, their care, their peaceful and dense energy and also that particular darkness and the irregularity of the black…
