Dylan Thomas Centenary Celebrations
A catalyst for creativity in Wales
Lighting the “green fuse”
Welcome to the University of Wales: Trinity Saint David’s webpages providing information about the various ways in which the University will be celebrating the centenary of Wales’ greatest English language poet.
Dylan remains an inspirational figure for creative artists in Wales, whatever their specific discipline. The centenary of his birth in 1914, provides an opportunity for artists and students to celebrate his work and his enduring legacy through a range of new cultural and artistic projects.
Linking into the Welsh Government’s DT+100 Festival and working in collaboration with a range of partners, an exciting series of events, awards and programmes have been planned for the coming year.
For more information about all of these initiatives click on the sub menu and keep checking over the course of the year as information will be consistently added.
Don’t forget to use the University’s social media pages on Facebook and Twitter to make your own contribution to the celebrations.
University of Wales
UWTSD is working with a number of partners to arrange a series of events and programmes throughout the centenary year celebrations, and amongst them is our merging partner the University of Wales.
The University of Wales has played a substantial role in the development of higher education in Wales, and through the traditional services associated with it, it has helped to promote and celebrate the language, heritage and culture of Wales.
The centenary celebrations of Dylan Thomas’ birth in 1914 will be an opportunity to celebrate the work of this cultural icon and the legacy he left behind through a number of events in Wales.
After recently taking over the lease of the iconic Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea, the University of Wales is working in collaboration with UWTSD to ensure that the venue forms part of these important celebrations, playing host to a range of artistic and cultural projects.
