The Artists will guide and support creative participation with the emphasis being on the development of the creative process rather than the finished outcome. So come out to play and celebrate, commemorate and create May Day of old and new.

Bring a packed lunch and suitable outdoor clothing.

The Mirror's Grain


The Mirror's Grain is an alchemical experiment masquerading as a live performance installation. By combining a variety of elements in the crucible of sand between the rivers Kenfig and Ogmore, the artists present their discovery of a rich and strange compound elixir. 
Deliriously inventive and intellectually stimulating, The Mirror's Grain explores surprising new ways of seeing ourselves in a world in which limits are the new frontiers.

‘Mouth to Mouth: a Celebration between two rivers’ highlights art and artists in Bridgend.
‘Mouth to Mouth’, a statement of art and community by people who live between the mouths of the rivers Cynffig and Ogmore, is organized by members of ‘ Arts For The Earth ’ and is funded by the Arts Council of Wales.

It features artists who perform and collaborate at ‘The Green Room’ in Porthcawl, 41 John Street, Porthcawl. Events include (see advert below).

Margaret Minhinnick of ‘Sustainable Wales’ said today: “‘Mouth to Mouth’ is a testament local people who recognize they are lucky to live in a unique part of the world, and wish to celebrate its history and vibrant present.
‘The arts are vital to any definition of ‘sustainability’.  What is art, but a description of what it means to be human?
“We’re pleased that Mouth to Mouth means our artists visit other parts of Bridgend county borough.

“The public is invited to all events. And we would like to hear from anyone else interested in joining ‘Arts for the Earth’ at our regular meetings. It’s an exciting development in local life.”
