Swansea appears to be buzzing with words of Dylan Thomas, Swansea’s internationally acclaimed and prominent poet.
As part of the Centenary celebrations a number of initiatives are underway. Here at SBREC, our Engagement Gateway staff have joined forces with Waterfront Museum to deliver benefits to their clients and at the same time celebrate the Centenary. Funding for the Engagement Gateway project is derived from European Social Funds via Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA). Its aim is to help people from black and minority ethnic communities gain confidence and the necessary skills to compete in the jobs market.
A Community artist, Rhiannon Morgan, has been delivering a series of art based workshops, the product of which will be on display at the Waterfront Museum as part of the Centenary celebrations. In this picture we present a small sample of the items that have so far been produced. The theme is a tea party. All items have been ‘cooked’ using cloth materials. This is a fine example of how creativity can be expressed using unusual methods and materials. The project has helped develop confidence in women from BME backgrounds who participated in the workshop sessions.
If you are from an ethnic minority background and if you feel you need some help and support in entering the field of employment please contact a member of staff at SBREC on 01792 457035.
