Stepping Stones to Brighter Days

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. 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.

Memo Growers

Artist: Lara Ward

Join us for weekly outdoor workshop sessions at the Memo, growing seeds, growing friendships and growing creatively. Run by Lara Ward, each week will be different, with activities such as designing planters, exploring the new Memo garden and a chat with a cuppa. These calm and creative sessions will take place under cover on the Memo grounds.

Lullabies at the Memo

Artist: Helen Woods

Together as a group, new mothers, fathers, babies – we will make a joyful noise. Singing, talking and laughing together. Over 5 weeks each family will create a little song, a lullaby, to sing to their baby. Drawing from her training at Carnegie Hall with their lullaby team, composer Helen Woods will guide you in the creation of your song, which will be professionally recorded by musicians (including you if you wish), and celebrated together in a final sharing, coffee and catch up.

Spaces are very limited, and you will need to come each week.
