Wales. Culture, creativity, tenacity. Small enough to facilitate a creative and active network and big enough for that network to flourish, gather for festivals and make a difference together.

Since we introduced the idea of Coda in mid-2015, a small core group have been gathering and communicating to steer the early days. The team has been flexible and open, and includes translators, web designers, organisers, advisors and more from a variety of backgrounds and expressions of faith.

We started out thinking we’d be a set of festivals around which we might be able to facilitate a network of people. Over time, Coda has evolved and now it’s more of a network out of which we will create festivals. Our core work is to create spaces where people, churches and communities can connect and share new perspectives through the arts in order to inspire one another towards faith and action. This hasn’t changed.

We’ve established an arts award which was open for applications in February and March 2017, had an open weekend gathering in Betws-y-Coed in the spring of 2017, and went camping together in July 2017 at our festival site for 2018, Dol Llys campsite in Llanidloes (see pethau bychain for more detail on our activities). We also meet up each year at the Greenbelt Festival; Coda was partly inspired by attendance at, participation in and appreciation of Greenbelt.

In mid-2017 a smaller group began to gather to plan our first festival in more detail.

That’s the story so far. All are welcome to create the next chapters...
