Bringing Gower Home to Dylan Thomas

Another rainy day out on the Gower but it didn’t stop students from Year 8 at Dylan Thomas Community School from having fun out at Rhossili. They spent a day on the clifftops as part of my Bringing Gower Home project and learned all about the natural environment as well as the history of explorer Edgar Evans who has connections to the local church.

This innovative project sees participants widening their knowledge of Gower as well as learning about photography. The whole project experience is focused upon developing participants’ life skills, particularly self-esteem. Today’s workshop was aimed at inner-city teens who wouldn’t normally visit Gower and will be followed up by a projected display of their favourite photographs back at school later next month.

The workshops encourage a connection with the landscape and celebrate what is personally special about the Gower. I am organising, delivering, and supporting this project in collaboration with Gower Landscape Project (GLP) which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Natural Resources Wales, City and County of Swansea, and National Trust.
