The Tu Fewn commissions

DASHThe biggest news items at DASH this month, is the recent release of the three commissions from our Tu Fewn partners; Ffotogallery, g39 and Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre.

Tu Fewn is one of our newest projects, delivering the opportunity for arts organisations in Wales to commission new high quality work by Disabled visual artists from across the UK and Internationally.

DASH is working in partnership with Disability Arts Cymru across the whole of Wales – and the commissions for each partner organisation are outlined below.

The successful artist-curator will be commissioned to work with the g39 team for a twelve-month period and will be responsible for devising one of g39’s 3-month seasons, comprising a main exhibition with associated projects / exhibition spaces, seminars and talks.
