Llên mewn Lle | Lit in Place

Llên mewn Lle | Lit in Place is a new project devised by Literature Wales in partnership with WWF Cymru, exploring the climate and nature emergency through literature.

The project offers funding to writers and facilitators to devise, set up, and deliver activity with a community of their choice. Three pilot projects will be supported in 2022-2023, which are Gwledda, run by Iola Ynyr in Rhosgadfan; The Fruits of our Fire run by Siôn Tomos Owen in Treherbert; and The LUMIN Syllabus by Sadia Pineda Hameed and Beau W Beakhouse in Swansea. These pilot projects aim to develop resilient communities by exploring and understanding their local eco-systems. The projects will also contribute to wider discussions on finding practical solutions to the adverse effects of the climate and nature emergency.

Elan Grug Muse, a member of the selection panel said:

I was inspired by all the applications received, the standard was very high and I am particularly excited about the facilitators who have been chosen – they are all completely different and I am looking forward to seeing the hard work come to fruition as they set about working with their communities.
