Thought-provoking post by John Rostron from Plug 2 and co-promoter with Huw Stephens of Swn Festival.
Events like Swn don’t just fall into your lap, they’re dragged up from the pits of creativity, passion and courage. It’s a shame that an event that raises the profile of Cardiff/Wales and encourages much positive exposure for the cultural arts here – not to mention the global links it forges by bringing over international acts – is still struggling to source funding.
It makes you wonder if there wasn’t a ‘name’ like Huw Stephens behind it if Swn would have existed at all….
Read the post and bear it in mind if you’re ever in the circles of the people of influence.
