We are proud to announce that Advanced Media Production lecture, Heledd Wyn, is one of eight successful artists who will make up the Future Wales Fellowship after being selected from more than 90 high-quality applications.
The Future Wales Fellowship is a new paid opportunity that uses art to explore the impact climate change is having on the people of Wales focusing on the three main themes of Energy, Food and Transport. The Fellows will be given support and opportunities to develop their own artistic work, but also the opportunity to take part in events with scientists and thinkers who are working to tackle climate change and promote more sustainable ways of living.
Natural Resources Wales and Arts Council of Wales are joint partners of the Fellowship. It is part of a wider programme of work linked to a Creative Nature Memorandum of Understanding to better understand how art and culture could play a beneficial role in engaging people in key issues such as the climate and nature emergencies.
Heledd teaches and supports our Students on our Introduction to Media Production Skills and Dissertation modules. She is delighted with future prospects of the fellowship saying
“It is an honour and an opportunity to develop my creative practice in film as well as work with the community to devise artistic and scientific strategies that will influence a more sustainable life in Wales”.
The first of these sessions was on 28 March 2022 hosted by the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) near Machynlleth.
