Butetown from an international mancunian perspective

I'm on a Creative Visit with two other artists from Contact in Manchester. We are looking into a potential project in Butetown.

I'd love to get involved as I'm an ex-Butetownie. My company CITRUS collaborates with events organisers, directors & producers to help add spectacular performance elements (dance, aerial-performance, circus-skills training), to projects on a range of scales.

Let me know if you'd like to add that extra element to the work.

Let me know if

These photos were taken by Borhan when he came down from Manchester to visit National Theatre Wales, along with Ali and Yusra. We spent three days meeting people living, working and developing South Cardiff BRG communities (Butetown, Riverside and Grangetown), and chatting with local people to find out more about the happenings in their local areas. We were exploring Butetown as a potential hub for a project; working with local people in Butetown to combine their pride and talent with the creativity of the Manchester artists. We are excited to see what can happen next and what can develop from our meetings.
