A new collection of art created by participants has gone on show in the city centre to brighten up safety hoardings around the new £135m Copr Bay project. The group’s new public artworks are portraits of friends and relatives.
The Welcome group is one of the regular creative workshops run by the Glynn Vivian team for the community in Swansea. The Welcome group is a safe place for refugees and people seeking asylum, to come together, to learn and socialise and to make art, but is also open to anyone.
Associate Artist, Mary Hayman said: “Art can change your life and this group helps change lives for the better. Having this work shown publicly is further recognition that our members are valued citizens of Swansea.
“We can’t wait to welcome the group back into the gallery when we can, and we hope that the public who see these amazing paintings will enjoy them.”
