Celf creates projects, exhibitions and residencies that open up opportunities for participation, develops artistic practice and presentation and supports social inclusion. etc.

 

To date, we have successfully recruited 14 artists to Celf’s innovative and pioneering Training and Mentoring programme (2009 – 2014), some artists have participated all the way through and others have joined and moved on.

 

Through early exhibition opportunities at Celf’s Beaufort Gallery in Llandrindod Wells, Oriel Davies Gallery in Newtown, and other venues in the UK, the majority of mentored artists have become increasingly visible, independent exhibiting artists.
