University of Wales Trinity Saint David invites you to a film premiere in Cinema&Co.

12.07.2017

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David warmly invite you to attend a special premiere called ‘Poetry In Motion’ in Swansea. The film is the product of a project that has been run by the Widening Access team. It will be held in Cinema & Co on Thursday 13 July at 6.30pm and all are invited to attend.

Poetry In Motion is a film, dance, and poetry project that was funded by UWTSD’s Widening Access and Community Engagement Committee. It consisted of poetry and dance workshops with UWTSD students and residents from Townhill, Clase, St. Thomas, and Port Tennant areas of Swansea. Over 60 participants attended the workshops as part of the university’s community engagement work in the SA1 area.

Amy O’Neill is studying for a BA Performing Arts (Contemporary Performance) at the university and was one of the students who participated in the project. She said: “The Poetry in Motion project was a wonderful experience. I was involved practically in the contemporary dance aspect of the project and it was great getting to work on movement outside of university. I also enjoyed making links with UWTSD staff, people who are in the creative industry, members of the community and students from other courses.”

The premiere is a celebration of these workshops and will feature two short films, live poetry, and dance. Light refreshments will also be provided. Doors open at 6.30pm and it is expected that the event will finish at approximately 8pm.  

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is committed to enabling participation from a range of students from diverse backgrounds. The Widening Access and Community Engagement Committee provide information, support and guidance to local community groups as well as giving advice on a one to one basis to anyone wishing to return to higher education, regardless of circumstance or background. We work with external partners to deliver outreach projects which aim to raise aspirations and to remove barriers to higher education as well as building confidence and increasing the likelihood of progression to higher education.
