A young Gwynedd artist, Llŷr Erddyn Davies, has been appointed to lead a community artistic project inspired by Gwynedd’s history, and the museum collections at Storiel in Bangor.

The project called “Hunan / Self” will be engaging with the children and young people from various communities throughout Gwynedd. People will be able to provide feedback by filling questionnaires, along with attending events held at Storiel and other locations throughout the county. The project aims to create a piece of art, which will then be located outside Storiel during 2018.

This Saturday, 14th October, Storiel will be holding an event ‘Popdy Yn Dathlu’ where there will be an opportunity to meet the artist, Llŷr Erddyn, who is leading on the project ‘Self’.
