About Postcards From the Future
This year we’re celebrating our 50th Birthday and, to mark this very special occasion, we‘re showcasing the work of local young artists! We invited all children and young people in Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, Bridgend, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil to send themselves a postcard from an imagined future, half a century from now. We asked them to let their imaginations run wild: How will we travel? What will school look like? Where will we live? What will we eat?
We had an amazing 1200 submissions from 17 different schools, and we’re so excited to see such incredible talent.
Thank you to all the schools, and to the amazing children and young people who entered their submissions.
This project is supported by:
James Graham Owen, the Moondance Foundation and Morgans Consult
Chapter is an international centre for contemporary arts and culture, and an important community hub that welcomes nearly 800,000 visitors each year.
For 50 years we have supported artists and audiences to thrive and take risks.
We are a centre for the production and presentation of world-class, inventive and compelling work that is open and accessible to all. Our gallery commissions and produces exhibitions of the very best in national and international art. Our theatre spaces are a platform for experimental and thought-provoking works. Our cinemas offer independent and challenging films alongside a range of unique festivals and events and we bring more films, to more people, in more places through Film Hub Wales. All of this is supported by an innovative and inclusive programme of learning and engagement events, and a large café bar where our local community can meet, eat and soak up the atmosphere over a great cup of coffee!
Our programme champions the artists of today and invests in those of tomorrow. We work with practitioners at every stage in their careers, supporting and stimulating opportunities for exciting new talent as well as promoting the work of established artists.
