Oasis & Ffotogallery at Tafwyl 2023

We are proud to have been working on a community project in collaboration with Oasis and professional photographer Dafydd Owen. We have been delivering creative workshops exploring the basics of photography, including experimental photography, a photowalk of the local area around Oasis and a portrait studio session, to a group of refugees and asylum seekers who work with Oasis.

The images captured through the workshops will be shown in an exhibition at The Old Library in The Hayes for two weeks, as part of the Tafwyl Festival programme, with an opening event on Monday 10th July. They will also be on display at the Tafwyl Music Festival in Bute Park, Cardiff during mid July.

Stay tuned for more updates!
