Same Difference children’s arts project makes its Welsh debut in Aberystwyth
The Morlan Centre, in the Welsh seaside town of Aberystwyth, is the first to host our Same Difference children’s art project in Wales.
A place for faith and culture, the Morlan Centre is a busy place!
People come to create and discuss, to perform and learn, to encourage and understand one another, to share and contribute…all things that make it a natural partner for the current leg of our touring exhibition which links children all over the world - highlighting their aspirations, similarities and differences.
On display until the end of March 2009, our exhibition features the artwork, human rights poems, hopes and ambitions of over 800 children from around the world.
The most recent additions come from the pupils of Llanafan, St Padarn, Cwn Padarn and Rhydypennau – four local primary schools who took part in International Service’s creative workshop at the beginning of March. Thanks to these pupils, Same Difference now features Welsh, Dutch and Malay amongst its many languages.
Ross Georgeson, International Service’s arts educator, said: “I was impressed by how well the children engaged with the exhibition. They put lots of thought and enthusiasm into making their cards.”
Same Difference will go on display at the Centre For Alternative Technology in Machnynlleth from 3rd April to 30th April.
