Gŵyl y Gorwel: A special evening of art, language, music and conversation | Thursday, 12th March, 6:30pm - 9:00pm 

The round table discussion will be followed at 6.30pm by Gׅŵyl y Gorwel, an evening of art, music, language and conversations with leading artists from Wales.

Experience the European premiere of the immersive 360 animation of Rhys a Meinir by Cian Ciaran (composer, songwriter, producer & one fifth of Super Furry Animals) and Bait Studio. Featuring a recorded soundtrack performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales and commissioned poetry narrated by Rhys Ifans (Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows, The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman). Rhys a Meinir evokes the heartbreak and drama of this ancient Welsh tale. Introduced by Cian Ciaran with Q&A.

Four days before releasing her much anticipated third album, Mai, award winning singer songwriter and harpist Georgia Ruth draws from folk influences to create a unique and compelling sound.  “…a rare talent, able to transcend borders of language, style and age with apparent ease...” -  Andy Gill, the Independent.

With digital art created and produced by Mark James (Producer of Gruff Rhys’ PANG! film which is being screened on Friday 13th March as part of Wales Week and ahead of a live performance by Gruff Rhys in Dublin’s St Patrick festival ) and with in-conversations led by Radio 1 and 6’s Huw Stephens and WAI’s Eluned Haf, the evening will take our guests on a surprising journey.

This event is aimed at cultural leaders, investors, artists and producers who want to be inspired to co-create beyond the horizon. Wales Arts International will be joined by National Companies, venues and festivals from Wales as well as supporters from Arts Council of Wales, Arts Council of Ireland, British Council, Culture Ireland, Creative Europe Desk, Creative Wales and Welsh Government.
