Valley and Vale Community Arts's picture


Valley and Vale was established during the miners’ strike in South Wales in the early 1980’s. At that time the organisation was offering creative activities as a way of helping people in the Garw Valley document their lives during a period of hardship and great change. These local interactions evolved into working with national and international communities using Community Arts as a vehicle for exploration and change for individuals and groups. Our aim has always been to offer safe environments in which individuals and groups are empowered to use creative person centred approaches to deliver process-focused arts activities.

Valley and Vale is committed to providing access to a range of creative activities and interventions that will enable a diverse range of people to develop skills, confidence and self-esteem. We believe that by equipping individuals with the courage and self-assurance, which can be nurtured by creative self-expression, individuals and communities can be strengthened and enriched.
