Please join us to celebrate the wealth of creativity by older people in Ceredigion as we celebrate the work of Wales’ first ever Gwanwyn club.
With an array of exhibitions and live readings from The Gwanwyn Club Writers Group.
The Gwanwyn Club is a full day arts club for the over 50s that offers a programme of weekly events to create opportunities for people to meet new friends and try out a whole range of new creative activities and experiences. Inspired by other clubs across the UK such as Meet Me at the Albany in London; described as ‘the kind of stereotype-smashing thing that sticks two knitting needles up at anyone who dares assume a day centre for older people is about flower arranging and endless cups of tea.’
Gwanwyn has offered this refreshing attitude to older people in and around Aberystwyth since May and ZEST is a culmination of their work created over the past six months.
The Gwanwyn Club is a partnership between Age Cymru, Age Cymru Ceredigion and The Creative Learning Department, Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Funded by The Arts Council Wales.
