Finding Maindee

What is Maindee? Where is Maindee? We are interested in how you see Maindee: past; present and future. There is a growing collection of books in the library and an ever-expanding social media record on our social media channels.

Finding Maindee started in 2015 and is funded by the Arts Council of Wales as part of the Ideas: People: Places programme. So far this summer we have seen the Senegambian and Latina Hispanic communities share their culture with us at the Maindee Festival Parade on Saturday July 9th. You are also invited to work alongside Jo Haycock as we explore homes in Maindee and look at the augmented reality at Sammy's Barbershop - both are current projects

If you have any ideas or thoughts please drop into the library, use our social media platforms or contact

Beyond this remit, the brief was open, and our plans for the outcome equally so.

This blog post will detail the choices and decisions we made to appoint a Sound Artist.
