Who’s making this this project happen?
The project is run by the cultural facilitation organisation Coleridge in Wales Ltd. Coleridge in Wales was founded by the singer Richard Parry and they have considerable experience 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. Coleridge in Wales are working in partnership with the Diocese of Llandaff in South Wales to make an invitation to all communities to join in the all communities to join in the discovery of the landscapes of faith.
How is the project funded?
This project is supported by the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme through Visit Wales, and with a grant from the Allchurches Trust.
What will happen?
We’re inviting you to take part in a community treasure hunt to uncover and celebrate the landscapes of faith, and in 2020 we’ll be launching a new website for international visitors and local communities so that everyone can explore and discover the amazing heritage that surrounds us.
Is it just South Wales?
We’re starting here in South Wales, and if you live in South Wales we’d love you to follow the project and get involved. But the rest of Wales also holds wonderful and vitally important treasures in the landscape of faith and we’re hoping to conduct more community treasure hunts soon, in Wales and around the world.
Do we pay to be involved?
No. It doesn’t cost anything to be involved. Most events, walks, drop-in sessions, explorations will be free. There may be occasional concerts with small admission charges for tickets but they will be low-cost and accessible. The idea is to involve as many people as possible, and there is no charge for most events and activitiy.
Can we suggest our event?
Yes! We’d love you to hold some sort of event, walk, concert, meeting, activity that celebrates you local landscape of faith. We’ll come along, tell you about the project, listen and learn and help to build your local landscape into the treasure hunt, so that other people can come to where you live and discover it.
