Museum spotlight on life in valleys
STORIES of lives in the Swansea Valley feature in a new exhibition at the National Waterfront Museum.
The free exhibition is the result of the Connected Communities project, which works with residents and societies to research the heritage of the communities across the Swansea Valley area.
It features materials from six local projects, and tells the story of the Hafod Copperworks, old Clydach, Chinese communities in Swansea, and of the composer of Calon Lan, Daniel James.
IT also features the mining history of the upper Swansea Valley, thanks to work from pupils at Maesyrdderwen School, and digitally preserved photographs of Swansea.
Kate Spiller, of Swansea University said: "The research varies greatly in focus — from coal mining and Welsh poetry to Chinese immigration and local photography. It all makes for a fascinating exhibition."
The public can visit the exhibition in the White Wall Gallery from Saturday.
