On Your Feet

Three women from the community attended the WMC for the first time this week to watch the musical “Get On Your Feet” and they certainly did. Their feedback was that : “The musical was amazing and they had a great night attending something that they have never attended before”


on until 26th October

As a result of visiting they are now wanting to become Community Ambassadors and bring more of a diverse audience to the WMC.

Our thanks go to Gemma Hicks (Cynhyrchydd Ymgysylltu Cymunedol

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.

Street Games funding- After School Club

Great news – from September, on Tuesdays, children in Riverside will be able to benefit from some fabulous after school activities.

This Thursday will be the last session for fit and fed this summer so Ranu is setting up some nice surprises for the kids to try, with the support of some local businesses – with something for the kids. Two businesses: Jannat Sarees have promised a big cake; One Stop Shop in Grangetown will surprise us with a box of goodies; hopefully both Clare food store and the local Spar will also be generous.

Some of the children have expressed a interest in boxing, and Ranu is approaching a local sportsman to come and show the kids some combinations and few tips.

A football coach whom currently runs coaching for kids will come in and have a kick about.

The younger children will be able to do art in the activity room. Thanks to the volunteers who have offered their time for this.
