Join Amgueddfa Cymru – Museum Wales as we explore key moments of resilience, creativity and activism in Wales.

Our panel will share their personal histories of advocating for change in relation to industrial action, the Welsh language, and anti-racism protest. Art and advocacy are intertwined, so our panel will be discussing items from the National Collection which resonate with them to bring their stories to life.

Amgueddfa Cymru – Museum Wales is a charity, and a family of seven national museums and one collections centre located across Wales. But we’re more than our buildings. Our sites are vital community spaces that reach far beyond their location on a map. Our aim is to inspire everyone we reach through Wales’s story and we recognise that everyone has something to contribute through our museums, collections and the work we do.
