The Warring Arts project was inspired by the impact of the First World War on our arts and culture. In response to the terrors and social upheaval, dramatic changes occurred in all art forms leading to the roaring 20’s which still have an influence on today’s society. A range of artists engaged with the communities of Welshpool and Llanfyllin delivering workshops in drama, craft, photography and painting. We also delivered training days for people interested in recording oral history training and we arranged a trip to the National Library of Wales. The project culminated in a roaring Tea Party showcasing all the art works and performances produced. The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Arts Council of Wales.
