I would like to thank Iola and all the artistic team at Cwmni'r Fran Wen, Menai Bridge, who made me feel so welcome when I delivered a presentation and workshop as part of the Arts Council Wales and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation funded project the Empty Page. This co-production between Fran Wen and Galeri, Caernarfon, will tour Wales in 2018.
As part of the Empty Page, Fran Wen's aim is to develop a piece of work that celebrates a child’s imagination, and looks at the relationship between two generations – a grandchild and grandmother.
