What is happening

GO4GIRLS

The Project will work with over 150 BAME girls in the community aged 10-16 to build their skills in sports activities which are traditionally male sports such as Cricket, Golf, Football, Cycling, Taekwondo, Baseball and Ice Hockey.

This will help girls identify future opportunities and enhance their aspirations beyond traditional gender roles.

The Project will develop interests in coaching and raise aspirations eg currently there are no female cricket umpires in Cardiff at present, coaching is presently promoted as a male only option.

The taster workshops will be over 10 weeks and facilitated by a Sports Coach (female) and accompanied by a Female Sessional Youth Worker.

Trips to matches and events will also take place after the workshops.

Footsteps in a Foreign Land – updated

On 11th September as part of Danielle’s play, research and development, a group of attendees listened to the play in development – this was followed by an interesting Q andA.

Chief, arriving as a seaman; as many did; and settling in Wales – Danielle re-tells scenes of discovery; memory; and events that resonate greatly today.

The tension within families, generations and cultures – ultimately dividing a family.

Now a third generation migrant Danielle draws from a rich vein of episodes from her families’ story.

Many of the scenes evict both an emotional and introspective response within the audience.

Danielle Fahiya’s family came on a journey to Wales and Danielle ended up here in Cardiff she now is a professional actress and playwright. She is of Jordanian, German, Welsh and Somalian descent.

With the support of many people: she was awarded an @Arts_Wales_ grant for her play telling the story of her family’s migration to Wales.

Footsteps in a Foreign Land promises to be a powerful reminder and redolent of the present world.

This play in development is shortly to be shown in a community setting at the Riverside Warehouse in Cardiff on the 13th September at 11 am.

Chapter will host a later showing at 4pm.

Pedal On

10 women attended the 1-1 cycling lessons in partnership with Pedal Power
https://www.cardiffpedalpower.org/ and Welsh Cycling
https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/wales@WelshCycling this week.

Some had never been on a two wheeled bike before and others had never been inside Pontcanna fields before.

These women are getting out in the fresh air, learning to ride a bike, making new friends, exploring new places, being outdoor, practising English and laughing with their friends.

This is a great way of de-stressing and thinking about the future.

Ladies, from Canton, Riverside and Grangetown.
