A programme of soul-warming sparks for the beginning of Spring.
In 2022 the programme is in two parts with something we hope for everyone –
* An invitation to explore and share new possibilities together with man hap – human happenings.
* A small gathering at The Lodge in the Cambrian mountains
All those interested in creating outdoor arts are welcome – from Producers, Town Centre managers, Artists those working in the natural environment, to Venues, Festivals, Ecologists, Local Authorities, and Funders.
Whatever your background or needs we would like you to feel at home taking part in these activities – we welcome conversations with you about what you need to take part. Just contact us – articulture-wales.co.uk/contact. Within Articulture itself we celebrate and support the diversity of our team including those that identify as Disabled and Queer. We aim for our activities to also be inclusive.
ManHap am dro – A creative invitation to explore and share
Jan/Feb 2022, across Wales
This January and February artist collective man hap – human happenings – invite you to plan a journey outdoors – a walk or a ride. A journey to a place that inspires you where you could freely imagine something creative taking place, together with a person and or persons of your choice.
You are then invited to share your experience with others at a special online event curated by ManHap on Fri 25th Feb 11am – 1pm, to co-create a new constellation of ideas and possibilities across Wales as we step forward into 2022.
Your journey starts with a postcard, sent to you by man hap in the post.
