You Are Here / Rydych Chi Yma
Commissioned by Swansea City Council

An artist lead consultation and investigation to accompany the City and County of Swansea’s cultural framework and future urban strategies. Identifying problems acting as independent agents between other consultative frameworks and the council we were able to develop a specific and unique perspective working closely with the public as well as marginalised groups and independent business owners active in the city. Creating pop up exhibitions, developing meanwhile use strategies, identify good practice and the problems which face cities in the UK such as absentee landlords, privatisation and gentrification practices by holding access to dormant areas of land.
