On Thursday 19th November, the Midwales Cymerau team held a fantastic event to mark the end of the Autumn season of work by local commissioned artists.
The event was in Talybont village hall and the artists came to showcase the work they had been doing.
Jo Munton showed some fun animated films made with 2 local schools about water. Many school children and parents came to the event, and the kids had a red carpet moment- so were dressed to impress!
Y Gors presented some the film they have been working on about Cors Fochno (Borth Bog). This is a work in progress though their creative vision shone through as well as some beautiful and haunting music.
Gwilym Morus-Baird performed traditional songs as part of the Penillion yr Leri project, where he composed music to verses written by local Welsh speakers. To hear some of these songs check out: www.gwilmor.com
Peter Stevenson introduced and showed his film filmed around Borth about a story written in 1858. To watch the film see it here: www.cabinetofcuriosities.moonfruit.com/films/4588864757
During the break- Jo Munton taught parents and kids how to make an animated film and some of Ester Tew's work from 'Water water everywhere' was projected.
Cymerau raised £155 for WaterAid and the local RNLI selling cakes, drinks and with a raffle. This would not have happened without the amazing help parents from the local schools.
