The event was held at the Wells Hotel, an art and living space run by an art collective. Everyone showed great respect for the self-run space and thank you so much for that. The positive attitudes and mutual respect is exactly what you need for these kinds of spaces to work.Before the event Colour Doomed , Zly , Ripe and Sophie Barras came to paint murals in the outdoor area, as well as artists like Jacqueline Jones, Lembo , Mr Kobo and Elen Mai Wyn Jones showing their work inside.

 


As well as the art there were zines, old and new which seem to have inspired loads of the people that came to make their own. They are really the coolest form of media – do it yourself, say what you want, make weird art…

THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT CAME OR CONTRIBUTED IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM !!!!
