With support from the Arts Council of Wales Create fund, the Memo is able to bring you a programme of very special and uplifting activities and events.
From planting seeds in the new Memo garden, to writing a personal lullaby for your baby, to crafting and constructing striking lanterns.
We’ve planned these projects, together with professional freelance artists and creatives, for our community to come together to participate and enjoy.
