Happenings and interventions take place all over the neighbourhood in a variety of sites, including empty shops, overlooked public spaces, peoples’ front gardens, homes and independent businesses. The Happenings category includes many of our newly commissioned projects which invite artists, both local and from all over the UK, to make new work in response to a specific site or element of life in Roath.

Coordinators Gail Howard & Clare Charles
