The Landscapes of Faith Festival runs every day through March 2021 in South Wales.
Our hills, valleys and coastal plains are teeming with a rich heritage of faith, yet many of the stories, heritage, sites and legends have been lost or hidden.
The Landscapes of Faith Festival is a community treasure hunt to celebrate our world faith traditions in Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Paganism and the prehistoric sites in South Wales.
All the activity will be Covid-19 safe, and if there are Government restrictions we’ll be running lots of elements of the festival online.
We’ll come to you to discover the treasure with you, in your area or community. We’re happy to come on walks, hold conversations, take part in concerts, drop-in sessions, attend schools and events.
We’d love you to get involved! Suggest places to explore, stories untold, people forgotten…
The project is run by the cultural facilitation comapny Coleridge in Wales Ltd. The organisation was founded by the singer Richard Parry and they have a lot of experience in organising community led events and projects in Wales including the 80 day Coleridge in Wales Festival in 2016 and producing the opening show Carnifal y Môr for the National Eisteddfod’s visit to Cardiff in 2018. http://www.worldclassfacilitation.org

GET INVOLVED IN THE FESTIVAL
What are the treasures in the landscape of faith near you?
The festival this March is a community treasure hunt. Let us know about the stories, people and heritage in your area, and we’ll come to discuss, explore and celebrate it with you.
We are launching a new website for international visitors and local communities so that everyone can explore and enjoy the amazing and diverse landscapes of faith in South Wales.
We’re inviting you as individuals, communities, groups, schools, villages, organisations and Local Authorities to get involved and join the treasure hunt.
