14.04.2016

Small World Theatre, an artist-led organisation based in Cardigan, are launching a series of events and exchanges exploring key environmental and social themes, resilience and artists' responses. 

The series of events, called TRWCO, will be launched during an event-full weekend on 15th 16th and 17th of April. 

The weekend’s events will focus on 'Ancient Welsh Woodland and its relationship to climate change - does rewilding provide hope?’

Dr Jane Davidson from the award winning Institute of Sustainable Practice, Innovation and Resource Effectiveness (INSPIRE) at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) will work with Small World Theatre during the launch.

Small World Theatre invites the public to join them and be part of a growing discussion on climate change, sustainable living and building positive futures. There will be opportunities for thought, story sharing, initiating conversations about environmental and social change as well as theatre and live performances.

During the event there will be talks from inspiring speakers, food, a field trip and performances by movement artist Simon Whitehead, Mr & Mrs Clark,  acclaimed poet Ceri Wyn Jones and Welsh traditional musicians Ceri Rhys Matthews and Julie Murphy.

Pat Wolseley, a botanist at the Natural History Museum and a specialist on lichens as bio-indicators of pollution and environmental change in Britain and South East Asia, will speak about her 40 year study of the lichens in local ancient woodlands and about survival and loss over centuries of change.

Simon Ayres, a forester and founder member of the Wildland Network and of Cambrian Wildwood, will talk about Wales’ first rewilding project including the role of culture and economics in how society relates to the environment.
