Website Launch

We are very pleased to announce that the new website and database will be launched this Friday, 17th June at the Cyfrwng Conference in Cardiff.  The website includes clips from the 40 solo, sited and group interviews that we've conducted over the past two years with artists, administrators, former art students, teachers and audience members.  Our new, updated database can also be found on the website, with information on over 700 events in Wales between 1965 and 1979, including performances, concerts, interventions, teaching events and peformative protests.  The database is fully searchable and contains images, memories and other traces of the work that we have discovered during the course of our research.  Please take a look, and let us know if you have more information, or if it jogs any memories.

Finally, Heike and Rebecca would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the project, especially our interviewees who have been so generous with their time and sharing their archives with us - diolch yn fawr!

Coming towards a close

Heike and Rebecca are coming towards to end of the project, winding down the research and focussing more on the outputs of the online, searchable database and the collection of interviews that will be deposited in various archives.

We will be releasing more information about this over the coming weeks, and also launching our new website.

We will also be presenting our findings at various conferences, including the Performance Studies International Conference in Utrecht at the end of May.

In the meantime, if you would like to contact us, please continue to email
