Tonyrefail Community Dresser 2010/2011

We want to create a contemporary dresser, one that reflects what is important to people today.

Objects curated by different communities from around Wales will be displayed in the Oriel 1 gallery, St Fagans National History Museum, for 6 months at a time, and then returned to their owners.

These will reflect the story of Wales today, just as the traditional Welsh dresser reflected the history of families over the centuries.

If you'd like to know more, or get involved, please contact Owain Rhys, Curator of Contemporary Life on 029 2057 3428 or email owain.rhys@museumwales.ac.uk

Childhood in Wales

Childhood inevitably comes to an end, usually with the acceptance of responsibilities, the realities of finding work, and the maturing of life-long friendships.

Here, a group of friends from Tonyrefail display objects that are important to them, now that they are getting used to the routines, and the joys, of adult life.
