About this Event

The Way Ahead: Launching the inaugural Swansea University Creativity Fellowships

Join us for an evening of interdisciplinary discussion and exploration as we introduce the first academic/ artist pairings of the Cultural Institute’s Creativity Fellowships.

Created by writer and Professor in Creativity Owen Sheers, the Creativity Fellowships are an exciting new initiative that offers two professional artists the chance to engage with and explore cutting-edge academic research at Swansea University. Each artist will have 12 months to immerse themselves in a chosen research project, before creating new works of art to be unveiled in December 2020.

Chaired by Professor in Creativity Owen Sheers, Playwright Kaite O Reilly (The Persians) will be in conversation with social historian Prof David Turner followed by Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year Peter Matthews in conversation with marine biologist Dr. Ruth Callaway.

6pm - 7.30pm followed by audience Q & A and celebratory launch drinks

Y Ffordd Ymlaen: Lansio Cymrodoriaethau Creadigrwydd Cyntaf Prifysgol Abertawe

Ymunwch â ni am noson o drafod ac archwilio rhyngddisgyblaethol wrth i ni gyflwyno’r cydweithrediadau cyntaf rhwng academydd ac artist fel rhan o Gymrodoriaethau Creadigrwydd y Sefydliad Diwylliannol.

Wedi'u sefydlu gan yr awdur a'r Athro Creadigrwydd, Owen Sheers, mae'r Cymrodoriaethau Creadigrwydd yn fenter gyffrous newydd sy'n cynnig cyfle i ddau artist proffesiynol archwilio ac ymwneud ag ymchwil academaidd blaengar ym Mhrifysgol Abertawe. Bydd gan bob artist 12 mis i ddewis prosiect ymchwil ac ymdrwytho ynddo, cyn creu gwaith celf newydd i'w ddadorchuddio ym mis Rhagfyr 2020.

Mewn sesiwn a gadeirir gan yr Athro Creadigrwydd, Owen Sheers, bydd y dramodydd Kaite O’Reilly (Persians) yn sgwrsio â’r hanesydd cymdeithasol, yr Athro David Turner, i’w dilyn gan sgwrs rhwng Artist Tirlun y Flwyddyn Sky Arts, Peter Matthews, a’r biolegydd morol, Dr Ruth Callaway.

6pm – 7.30pm wedyn bydd cyfle i’r gynulleidfa ofyn cwestiynau a chael diodydd i ddathlu’r lansiad
