Tu Fewn - g39

Gail Howard - g39:

does that include us? / yn cynnwys ni? was the culmination of a year-long period of curatorial mentoring offered by g39 to artist-curator Gail Howard, and forms part of the Tu Fewn project supported by DASH and Disablity Arts Cymru.

Gail Howard is a co-director of Made in Roath, an arts organisation conceived in June 2009 by a small group of Roath based artists who share a love of their community.

Her commission at g39 was a curatorial residency, was realised in July 2016.

does that include us? / yn cynnwys ni? was a multi-artform programme of events presented by artists, facilitators and activists, some who identify as disabled and some who don’t.

For the first part of the season, 22 July 25 August, participants in social gatherings, performances, practical activities, conversations and debates. Through these activities we found innovative and experimental ways to promote discussion around the subjects of access, inclusion, empathy and diversity within the arts and the wider community.
The second part of the season, 2 – 24 September, was an exhibition of documentary material with an accompanying exhibition of the paintings of Sargy Mann.
