This Thursday 25 October, we begin a new series of public discussion meetings to gauge your ideas and suggestions for our future displays of the original collection and our learning programmes for when the gallery reopens in 2014.

The Community Café will be open for business at the YMCA Kingsway, Swansea, from 6pm to 7pm and we will be asking you to recommend ways the new gallery can best tell the stories behind the rich collection that Richard Glynn Vivian gave to the city over 100 years ago.

During the gallery’s closure, we will be working with local community groups and audiences to help investigate the original collection given to the people of Swansea in 1908 by Richard Glynn Vivian, the youngest son of Hafod copper industrialist John Henry Vivian.

Some of the artworks in the collection have not been on display in over 100 years and through the Community Café we would like to discover what is most meaningful about the collection for the people of Swansea today.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to help us build a successful gallery for generations to come!

Everyone welcome, no booking required.

  1. Lovely to see this project taking shape. It seems a long way away but good luck with everything and hopefully we’ll pop down when it opens in 2014.
