Seeing the light in lockdown

Woman in Colour (2020) by Michael Burgess

As we find ourselves living through another lockdown, we are asking you once again to help us find some light. In a time of disconnection, let's connect through creation. In a time of introspection, let’s look to the future.

This lockdown, let’s free our minds to imagine what life, the arts and the world could and should be like. Sharing our building with audiences, communities and artists is what makes Wales Millennium Centre a magical place for us all to enjoy.

Once again, we are asking you to share your hopes, thoughts and stories, through words, songs, music, dance, animation and in any other way you chose.

We want you to be a part of our Voices of Change exhibition, so that when we get the chance to gather again, we can fill this iconic building with an exhibition of your voices and your work.

Hope comes from the power to make change and Voices of Change is your chance to be heard; to work together with us as a community and create a truly inspirational exhibition for the future.

Local photographer Dee Bryan has been taking her own incredible self portraits throughout 2020 which we'll be featuring in a blog soon.

We still don't know exactly what it will be - this will depend largely on the sort of materials we receive from you over the coming months – but whatever it is, our goal is for it to reflect a moment in time, where we are now and where we all want to be in the future.

We're asking everyone: our audiences, communities, musicians, poets, photographers and local artists to help us to create a new installation that fill our building and bring everyone together.

This community-led project is about capturing your hopes and dreams for the future so let your imaginations run wild.

You could submit a drawing or a painting, knitting, a photograph or podcast, a collage, a song or a playlist or even just a thought.


Take a look at some of the work people have sent in so far.

Dominika Rau from our Radio Platfform team put together this brilliant dance video - guaranteed to make you smile - which features people from right across Wales. Keep an eye out for the guy dancing while kneading his bread dough!

Perhaps during the lockdown you've realised there's something you can now do without or maybe you've discovered something you'll definitely want to keep doing once we return to normality.

What will remember most about this strange time? What are your concerns for the future? What's the first thing you'll do when social distancing ends?

Voices of Change is about capturing all of this and more. It's a conversation with us, led by you.

If you're feeling inspired by what you've seen then we'd love to hear from you. Email us at or tag us in your social posts.
