…what makes a home?…

…i am in the process of producing a wonderful project with Volcano Theatre Company who are based on Swansea’s High Street. It is a partnership project with Coastal Housing Group.The What Makes A Home project which started in April 2019, aims to explore the notion of ‘What Makes a Home?’ There are 5 Coastal Housing Tenants who are collaborating with 6 Artists to visualise their vision of what makes a home for them… I have been working with the brilliant Eifion Porter who has produced an incredible set for the project… And now the Artists are busy at working realising…
