Exhibition open 1st – 31st October, Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 6pm and Sunday 12 – 5pm
Closing Event 31st October 5pm – 8pm
Artists Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale will be transforming The Abacus into a dynamic art exhibition-cum-alternative visitor information centre exploring Cardiff in all its multifaceted glory. The exhibition will grow day by day as visitors add their own observations, little known facts and creations to The People’s Map and The People’s Gallery. An unusually entertaining survey will give residents and visitors from elsewhere a chance to say what they think about Cardiff past, present and future.
Fill in a Survey | Make a Cardiff Souvenir | Bring in your Cardiff inspired artworks and artefacts | Make a ‘mini-artwork’ Badge | Add your story to the People’s Map | Make a Cardiff Postcard | Have a Cuppa and a Biscuit and tell us your stories!
We need your help to make this exhibition grow! Please bring in any Cardiff related or inspired artworks, photographs and strange objects / artefacts or come and get stuck in in our creative zone!
Make sure to come along to the Closing Celebration on the 31st where you can see the finished exhibition and there’ll be a Tom Jones cake amongst a buffet of gherkins, wine and other such delights! From 5pm-8pm, bring a bottle!
