Students tackle social awareness in Higher Education Institutions

In collaboration with Artworks Cymru, eight CSAD students travelled around South Wales from Cardiff to Bargoed, from Abergavenny to Blaenavon, to observe a diverse range of participatory arts practices. The organisations included: Caerphilly Craft Ambassadors working with students at risk of being NEETs, Nofit State Youth Circus working with children with special educational needs and Steetwise Opera, empowering the homeless through the shared act of singing, amongst other organisations.

The project began with the simple question – how can we encourage social awareness in Higher Education Institutions without diminishing the quality and contemporary contribution of arts practice?
