ProjectCardiff will consist of a series of portraits of those people who make a valuable contribution to the life and soul of Wales’ capital city.
This inaugural chapter of ProjectCardiff will focus upon those individuals who are making a positive contribution to the creative cultural life of Wales’ capital city. These individuals may be involved in some way with artistic, creative, design or cultural endeavours: people who help to shape, influence & make a difference in Cardiff through their talent, enthusiasm and hard work.
ProjectCardiff invites the community of Cardiff to participate in this project by nominating their own creative and inspirational heroes. Help us identify these individuals whether they be artists, activists, architects, bloggers, crafters, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, film makers, organisers, promoters, performers, imaginators…
What is it about these individuals that impresses most?
How are they making a difference?
ProjectCardiff seeks to unearth the interesting and inspiring stories of Cardiff’s inhabitants and draw people’s attention to the city’s vibrant energy and abundance of talent.
ProjectCardiff is not intended to be a popularity contest and as such individuals will not be selected based upon the number of nominations they receive. Nominations for neophytes to the creative and cultural industries will be considered with equal merit to those received for long established creative entrepreneurs who have brought a multitude of activities, events and other projects to the city.
A selection panel will be convened later this year to assess the nominations received along with those names canvassed from conversations with the lovely people who dwell in this energetic young city following which individuals will be invited to sit for a portrait by the talented photographer Lann Niziblian.
Do please visit www.projectcardiff.com to make a contribution to this project and nominate a Cardiffian who has inspired you recently.
