Swansea Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

As a BID we will work with our universities, businesses members and local authority administration to operate the project following a structured timetable of bookings. Being moveable it could be placed in several locations around the City Centre for all to benefit and take part. Being Dylan Thomas Centenary year in 2014 as Swansea being the birth place of Dylan Thomas we would place the project forward to be used as part of the City Centre celebrations working in collaboration with government and local authority.

We would also like to us the project to house bands to support events we organise and add another dynamic to the area. This coupled with usage for student showcases in dance and theatre and entrepreneurial activities makes this idea a very exciting one indeed and would benefit many different communities in the area.

What we'll deliver:

  • Procure and place a new band stand/speakers corner in the City Centre

Why it's a great idea:

As mentioned, 2014 is Dylan Thomas centenary year and as Swansea was his birth place it would be great to get something like this up and running to support this and beyond. Plus, Swansea has a strong connection with Political Studies and Music which this project would lend itself well to support and develop.

Steps to get it done:

  • Work with local authority planning procure, design, place, market it to users.

Its a great idea!!
