I have the exciting opportunity to curate a paste up project in collaboration with Volcano Theatre and Coastal Housing Group funded through the Arts Council of Wales’s Ideas : People : Places initiative.
The Palace Theatre Paste Up Project is a cornerstone project of From the Station to the Sea, and will be part of The Troublemakers’ Festival in Swansea, UK this July.
We believe The Palace deserves to operate again and this project an opportunity to wonder on what it might have been like when it was first launched in 1888, or when operated as a theatre until the 1970’s or what will it look like when it’s renewed from disrepair?

Five women at different stages of their careers will be answering your questions about how they achieve great things in the arts, what tools have helped them, how they manage imposter syndrome, and the importance of collaboration and mentorship.
‘Women in the Arts’ is an ongoing dialogue addressing endemic issues of gender inequality and exclusionary practices in the arts landscape. The online jobs board (instigated through Facebook) was the inaugural response to a need for accessible communication surrounding women in professional practice. The Facebook group has connected women with opportunities in contract, gallery and government arts roles. Though the group began as a jobs board, it has demonstrated how women in the arts benefit from collaboration and solution-based discussion.
