Artfest

Coracle Europe Autumn Festival

Carmarthenshire 18-22nd October

Since 2010 write4word has been collaborating with artists, writers and performers in Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, Turkey, Portugal and Italy. Over the long weekend of 18 -23 October 2018 several of our creative friends from Ireland Sweden and Wales will be having a few gatherings in music bars, pubs and art galleries in and around Carmarthen.

As these international cohort of creative practitioners have a vast capacity for high quality artist performance, our arranged meetings have evolved into a programme of events taking place in the Parrot Music Bar, Greenspace Gallery, the Queens Hotel, the White Lion, Llansteffan Boat Club and even on board the Carmarthen Bay Ferry.

Entry to all events is free for staff of University of Wales Trinity Saint David upon production of a d-staff card. (This does not include a raffle ticket at the Monday event or a copy of the book being launched on Sunday).
