Welcome to madeinroath 2017!

This year madeinroath is 8 years old! As ever, the festival aims to take art out of the gallery and into the community, through an exciting programme of events and activities. There’s plenty to look forward to with madeinroath, including our annual Night Time Walk, Red Route and Made in Spring, and of course, the main festival in October. As always, madeinroath’s focus is on showcasing the huge creative talent from within the local community, as well as bringing exciting and inspiring art and culture to Roath from further afield. We are proud to have exciting contributions from 
artists, makers, musicians, writers, performers, film makers and community makers, using the whole of Roath as the venue, with generously donated domestic and commercial spaces as well as the public or overlooked.

We’d love it if you made a date in your diary for this year’s madeinroath events, and join in with the adventure!
