Pentrehafod mural and heritage projects
Croeso and welcome to Pentrehafod mural and heritage page. Below you will find videos of projects from the partnership between Pentrehafod School, Swansea University and Hushland Creative. These creative collaborations have explored the rich cultural and historical heritage of the local area.
The banner above is a picture of the 13 x 2.5 meter mural that was installed into the foyer of Pentrehafod School following a multi session project with Swansea University and creative practitioner Bill Taylor-Beales.
There is also a smaller version to be found in the PACE building. The premise was to explore what Cynefin meant in the context of the school and its heritage with Copperopolis and beyond.
Below we also have films from other projects with the school and feeder primaries looking at Copperopolis and its local and national impact.
Cynefin, pronounced kuh-nev-in, is a Welsh word that signifies the multiple, intertwined factors in our environment and our experience that influence us (how we think, interpret and act) in ways we can never fully understand.
Cynefin is a Welsh word meaning “haunt”, “habitat”, “acquainted”, “accustomed”, “familiar”. It carries with it a sense of rootedness—temporal, physical, cultural or spiritual. It “describes [a] relationship: the place of your birth and of your upbringing, the environment in which you live and to which you are naturally acclimatised’.
