Message…

“Tidal Lagoon Power has submitted to the UK Planning Inspectorate an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) scoping report looking at Tidal Lagoon development in the area of Cardiff and Newport.  The report outlines the scope of the EIA with relevant regulators and provided the opportunity for them to comment. This is very much the entry point to the planning process, and marks the start of over two years of pre-application project development work which we will be undertaking”.

Neil would like to talk to What Next? Cardiff Chapter about the early stages of their project and understand your views and the potential for arts and culture to be a part of the project.

The website for Tidal Lagoon Cardiff can be located at  www.tidallagooncardiff.com where you will be able to find more information on the proposals, and will be updated as the project develops.

Welsh Museums Festival

Below message from Heledd Fychan from Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales:

After a successful first year, the Welsh Museums Festival returns in a few weeks. This time it will coincide with October half term, and also Museums at Night. There are two strands to the festival – one public facing in terms of encouraging people to visit their local museums, and the second an advocacy strand targeted at politicians. If you have been working in partnership or collaboratively with a Museum, there could be an opportunity for you to take part in the festival and also use for your own advocacy purposes.

Further information about the festival itself can be found here: http://museums.wales

The purpose of What Next?

Broad aim: to find new ways of engaging with our audience and visitors: the ever-expanding millions who value and take part in the cultural work that happens day-in, day-out up and down this country.

Guiding star: to encourage the people of this country, as individuals and as communities, to see connections between the many different ways art and culture affect and enhance our lives; to urge everyone to register their endorsement of – and pleasure in – their art and culture, especially where these are under threat.
