Okay, I really should have a clear picture in my mind of the background to the meeting, especially considering I was tasked to write the minutes!! The event was made more memorable by a heavy rain shower that found its way through several holes in the roof. There was also an appearance by possibly the largest bag of potato crisps in the known world.
Topics for discussion included "Is art an effective means of protest?" and "Do art and politics mix?" The tentative suggestion was raised that an Artists Union could be set up for Welsh creative types. At the very least, a Facebook page will be created (by a graphic designer no less, so expect to be impressed).
Well, it was great to meet (and listen to) such a thoughtful and talented bunch of creative people. I hope something comes of it (another meeting is planned) though my head tells me the task of organising artists will be as successful as herding cats!!
