“We will explore how sustainable living can be made possible for all in Montgomeryshire and express our thoughts and feelings on the issues through art,” said Amanda Wells of the band.

“The project will launch on Saturday February 5 from 2-4pm at the Center for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth. The project is funded by Arts Council Wales.

“We will be working with the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust, Siawns Teg and artist Jo Munton, and we are very pleased to also be working with the Center for Alternative Technology and the Montgomeryshire Youth Theatre.

“The first meetings will be a discussion on sustainable living and how the climate crisis and social issues affect us all in our daily lives, and will share ideas on how we can use our creativity to raise awareness and promote a larger discussion.

Amanda added: “We will then be trying different forms of artistic expression from February to June, venues will be the Center for Alternative Technology, Focus Enterprise Hub, Newtown, Community Centre, Guilsfield, Llanfair Caereinion Institute and the Library Building (DRC), Llanfyllin Reservations are required for all dates and locations via Eventbrite, search “DaearGelf/EarthArt”.
