Giving space to better thinking!
A new partnership for the arts and the environment
Arts Council of Wales has teamed up with Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water to create a three year artist in residency programme for aspiring and leading artists at the company’s flagship Elan Valley estate in Powys.
Under Dark Skies by Powys Dance
Powys dancers are counting down the days to their performance at an international dance festival in Cardiff next month.
Members of Powys Youth Dance Company and their older counterparts – Senior Moment(um) – are working with choreographer Joanna Young, Portuguese composer Filipe Sousa and filmmaker Simon Clode on ‘Under Dark Skies’.
Dark Skies November Update
The attached map shows the Night Sky as seen in November at around 20.00hrs. By looking Southwards and holding the chart with S at the bottom, the centre of the map will show the stars overhead with the Northern sky behind you.
