Under the guidance of professionals in Camera, Sound, Edit and with the help of feedback rounds they will be producing fictional films, documentaries and music videos.


Our other programmes include a concept for young people that will take place in cooperation with the Fabmobil. An excerpt from their diverse offer:The Fabmobil connects young smartphone professionals with work-experienced and partly retired technology experts in intergenerational offers – in this way, a long-term and intergenerational learning process can be created. The mobile character of the project creates a closer network of the cultural and educational venues spread throughout the region. 

For day visitors and people with an affinity for art and technology, we have also prepared two theme days in the second week on the use of artificial intelligence, the Anthropocene and socio-political engagement. 

As a crowning finale to the first week, we are also hosting the music festival Rashomon Festival with two floors and

Workshop Overview

Following the Case Study Webinar, there will be an opportunity to take part in one of two case study workshops designed to support you to write a case study for an arts, health and wellbeing project based on the WAHWN Case Study template.

The WAHWN Case Study template was developed in consultation with more than 90 arts and health practitioners, artists, academics and policy makers, with input from the Welsh NHS Confederation and Arts Council of Wales.  It has been developed to speak to Assembly Members, policy makers and healthcare partners as well as to arts audiences.

The workshops are aimed at anyone who has delivered and evaluated an arts, health and well-being project and wishes to share the outcomes, impacts and learning from that project through a case study.  

It will take you through the process of identifying the information you need to write the case study, including:  

  • What is notable or important about the project
  • Key messages relating to the outcomes and impacts of the project
  • Learning and implications for future practice
  • We will then look at how to structure your narrative as a credible and meaningful story of change or learning.

The workshop will explore how you can make best use of your Case Study once written, including: 

  • What you hope to achieve by writing a Case Study
  • Who the audience is for the Case Study
  • How you will share and disseminate the Case Study
  • Examining a range of existing Case Studies, we will look at how to use quotes, film, sound, and image to bring them to life and unpack ethical implications around consent and confidentiality.

This is a hands-on workshop for participants who have an evaluated project on which they wish to base their case study. Participants will be asked to do some pre-workshop activity to compile the basic information about their project before the workshop and be ready to apply their learning to develop the first draft of a case study.
