Peak: Art in the Black Mountains

Peak logoFrom Monday 1st January 2018, Arts Alive Wales will be known as Peak. This new name and look, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of our charity, will help promote our work to a wider audience.

 

You may be familiar with Peak as the name of our visual arts programme Peak/Copa, which has seen us deliver some exciting projects and residencies with professional artists over the past four years, gaining recognition for exciting artist-led projects in collaboration with Canal & Rivers Trust, Green Man Festival, Brecon Beacons National Park and Abergavenny Food Festival amongst others. Now the organisation is looking to the future with a new identity as Peak. Creative Director Rebecca Spooner said:

‘Peak seemed a natural choice for our new name. It is short and memorable, and connects to our unique rural location as well as pointing to the ambition of our work with communities and professional artists.’

 

Cardiff-based artist, graphic designer and filmmaker Mark James designed the logo, which has echoes of our mountainous environment in its colours and contours.

The name change to Peak comes at a time of exciting growth for the organisation, which is now a member of Arts Portfolio Wales, one of 67 arts organisations that receive investment from Arts Council of Wales. Major UK funders, including BBC Children in Need and the Health Lottery, are also supporting its arts projects for children and young people in the region.

While Peak’s 2018 programme reflects change and innovation, with digital technology playing an increasing role, Peak continues to provide the creative experiences that have been central to its success since 1988 and the organisation’s ethos remains the same. Chief Executive Justine Wheatley explains:

‘Participation in the arts is at the heart of everything we do, creating opportunities for those with least access, especially for children and young people of all abilities and backgrounds.’

 

The Peak Spring Programme 2018 is out now, launching the new name as well as a fundraising appeal to ensure that the charity can reach more children and young people.

 

You can contact us via email via info@peak.cymru or call 01973 811579

The new Peak website www.peak.cymru will go live on 1st February 2018.
You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the handle @peakcymru.

This is an exciting time of change for Arts Alive Wales and we want you to be at the heart of it.

In 2016 we were delighted to be included in the Arts Council of Wales portfolio for the first time, which made an investment in our ambitious programme over the next three years. This Spring we welcomed two new members of staff to the team, Rachel Dunlop, Participation Manager and Gavin Johnson, Digital Manager. Our contemporary programme, Peak/Copa and our projects for young people, Caban and Portffolio, as well as our studio programme of creative courses have all grown and developed thanks to the support of the many people and project partners who have been involved.

Now, we’re reviewing how we communicate with you. What might Arts Alive Wales look like, sound like and feel like in the future?

We would be very grateful if you could complete a short survey (which should take no more than 10 minutes) that will help us to find out more about how and why people connect with us and how we can involve more people, of all ages and backgrounds in Arts Alive Wales.

Click here to start the survey.
If you would like this survey in Welsh or large print please contact us.

Deadline for feedback is 5pm Friday 30th June 2017.

Once you’ve completed the survey if you would like to offer additional feedback please email: info@artsalivewales.org.uk  / tel: 01873 811579. We would love to hear from you.

Best wishes
Arts Alive Wales team
