OverviewThe UNESCO-designated Dyfi Biosphere in mid-Wales received funding from Visit Wales to hold a series of events on the subject of the themed Year of Legends. Events were theatrical and participatory, and I was commissioned as project coordinator and marketing.
I put together six events, including:
- a Storybus driving around the area while telling all of its tales in one day
- a 12ft puppet of Lady Augusta, increasing understanding of the Dyfi Biosphere from the Aberystwyth prom
- a full day's art and archaeology at the submerged forest in Borth, learning about the ancient woodland using art materials, microscopes, and fieldwork out amongst the stumps
- storytelling out on the limited-access Borth Bog
