What’s your vision of Grangetown?

13 October 2016

A day-long workshop will be exploring visions of Grangetown this weekend.

What’s Your Grangetown? is being led by architecture students and local artists as part of Cardiff University’s Community Gateway programme.

Residents are being invited to the Grange Pavilion in Grange Gardens (Saturday October 15th, 10-2pm) to the sessions led by Welsh School of Architecture students and resident artists Richard Powell and Art shell.

Then in the afternoon there will be an exhibition between 2-5pm, to celebrate Grangetown’s past, present and future, with adult and kids activities and free tea and cake.

The exhibition will include work by Welsh School of Architecture students and Grangetown school pupils.


Architecture student Maxene Sommer said: “It’s amazing to come back year after year to see how the community have made their dreams and ambitions a reality, from the philosophy café to the new Grange Pavilion design.

“From green spaces to local business, there’s a lot to chat about, map or design – whatever takes your fancy.

“Your ideas and opinions really matter to us, so whether there’s a reason Grangetown is special to you, or you think an area could be made even better, please feel free to come along and share with us your vision for your home and community.”

Mhairi McVicar, academic lead of Community Gateway, said: “We are really excited about third year architecture students organising an event in the local community and look forward to working with local residents to discuss their visions for Grangetown.”

Booking is advisable for the workshops, which you can do online here

You can also pop into the Grange Pavilion any Monday or Friday 9am-5pm to find out more about how you can get involved, or contact communtygateway@cardiff.ac.uk.
