My name is David Appleyard and I was recently commissioned to create artwork for Penderyn Square in Merthyr Tydfil.
(The aim of the commission is to interpret the Merthyr Rising story to a contemporary audience, making it relevant in the context of our time)
Over the coming months, I will be making regular visits to Merthyr, in order to carry out research and to work with key groups within the community. I will also be using this forum as a way of gathering ideas, information and opinions. So, in the coming weeks, I will be posting information about activities and links to online project information.
If you have any initial thoughts relating to the aims of the project why not add a comment to this thread?! And, if anyone would like to know more about the project, feel free to contact me on the email address below or via my Twitter page @app023
