madeinroath is an artist-led organisation and festival, now in its 9th year. It showcases the work of emerging and established artists, makers, musicians, writers and performers, who use the whole of Roath as the venue, including domestic, commercial, public and overlooked or disused spaces.
madeinroath offers residents and visitors an opportunity to engage in the arts through a dynamic programme of socially engaged projects and events, broadening audience access to the wealth of creative talent in our neighbourhood. Over the last nine years, we have built a strong working relationship with the community of Roath, offering a unique opportunity for artists to work with an open and receptive community.
Artist Opportunity – Residency/Commission
madeinroath are looking for expressions of interest from artists with an interest in growing, eating, ecology, sustainability, public and social spaces and community engagement within contemporary practice. We have secured funding to look at developing the cultural and community offer of public, community garden spaces within Roath, and have identified two gardens to work with - Mackintosh Community Garden and Plasnewydd Community Garden (Shelley Gardens) - as well as space and time to develop and research within g39 gallery’s Unit(e) programme.
