hello! welcome to the madeinroath
madeinroath is an arts organisation that is based in the heart of Roath, Cardiff.
madeinroath is for anyone and everyone who’s interested in art, culture, community or just having fun, and we have people from all across the UK (and beyond) who travel to Roath to take part.
Our annual festival takes place in October, when we host a week-long extravaganza of events and activities across all creative disciplines, showing the very best of local talent alongside some excellent national and international artists. We believe art and culture can enrich the lives of everyone, and so that’s why a lot of what we do takes art out of the traditional museum or gallery spaces and into the community.
madeinroath’s new space
1a Inverness Place / Longer Tables is new project space, and creative community resource, based in the heart of Roath. From there, we’ll be running a year round programme of creative activities and events, additional to our festival programme. Generously funded by Arts Council Wales, it will change, develop and adapt throughout the year as a space where things happen, where creativity can be encountered or explored, where people gather, where the community meets. To get involved, pop in or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
April events include:
Thomas O’Sullivan residency
To launch our new community space at 1a Inverness Place, madeinroath have invited artist Thom O’Sullivan to be resident from April 9th – 22nd. While there, he’ll be meeting and talking to you, the community, as well as hosting events and building tools to develop the space.
You are welcome to pop into 1a Inverness Place whenever we’re open, but are also invited to the following events, which will be added to throughout Thom’s residency.
Wednesday, April 11th: Brunch, with informal talk from Spit & Sawdust and others,10.30am
Sunday, April 22nd: Celebration event, 6pm.
– Banner Making Workshops
madeinroath are excited to be taking part in PROCESSIONS.
We will be designing one of the 100 banners celebrating 100 years as well as a community banner. Workshops will be held at 1a Inverness Place / Longer Tables.
The project will take shape over 8 workshop sessions (2 hours each) over the coming months. This will include an introduction session followed by design and making sessions with guidance and support from lead artist Jessica Ackerman.
If you are interested in getting involved in creating the community banner please contact Pip at email@example.com.
Play your part in PROCESSIONS – one of the largest participatory artworks ever created.
Produced by Artichoke and commissioned by 14 – 18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, PROCESSIONS marks 100 years since the first women in the UK won the vote. It was a big moment and we need your help to celebrate in a really big way.
On Sunday 10th June 2018, join thousands of women to form four epic PROCESSIONS in the four political capitals of the UK – Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.
Women and girls, those who identify as women and non-binary individuals of all ages, persuasions, races, cultures, abilities, political affiliations and backgrounds are invited to create four living portraits of women today and walk with banners, pennants and flags they have made to express the lives, ideas and hopes of women in the 21st century.
Join us and register to attend at www.processions.co.uk.

May events coming up:
Made in Spring

(between Strathnairn St and Albany Road)
For this years Made in Spring street festival we are holding a special event, the Longer Tables Community Lunch. Plasnewydd Road ( between Strathnairn and Albany Road) will be closed to traffic, and a commissioned bespoke long table will transform the road into a place to share food, conversation, skills, creativity and ideas. Come along and take part in a very special street party for Roath – take your place at the table and enjoy all that that it has to offer.
You are very warmly invited to join madeinroath’s 5th Red Route, taking place on 5th – 6th May 2018!
Red Route is a very special 27 mile march, demonstrating the importance of art and culture to society, from Merthyr Tydfil’s beautiful Redhouse to Made in Spring festival, Roath. Over two days we’ll walk along the Taff Trail, sharing food, conversation, and especially art – with a number of commissioned artworks and performances along the way.
All refreshment is free during Red Route, and will culminate in a feast together at Made in Spring.
Stay tuned for further details of artist commissions or how you can get involved.
