One of the highlights for 2018 was the award winning Under the Bridge project.
DJ workshops, break dancing, street art activities and a skate park were all on offer to teenagers at Milford Waterfront over the summer when Under the Bridge returned for its third year. Its been so successful and even won a 2017 Arts & Business Cymru Award in recognition of its contribution to reducing anti-social behaviour, promoting a sense of pride in the area and providing opportunities for young people to try new activities.
The project was funded by the Port of Milford Haven and Arts & Business Cymru and delivered in partnership with Milford Youth Matters and Arts Care Gofal Celf.
The Port also used art to engage with the local community over the dangers of tombstoning.
Many don't realise the dangers. Cold water shock, strong currents and submerged objects can injure and kill. While the Port can and will prosecute anyone caught tombstoning, our aim was to reach out and increase awareness of just how dangerous tombstoning is.
In 2017 we worked with Theatr na nÓg to deliver their award-winning Would you Jump? show to great effect. In 2018, in conjunction with Cardiff Harbour Authority and with funding from Arts & Business Cymru, we went one step further by incorporating a scriptwriting workshops for Year 7 and 8 pupils. Pupils worked with Sara Lewis, freelance writer and director, to create their own storylines that could be used as a Would You Jump? sequel producing fantastic results that were performed by the pupils and the professional actors.
