CALL (Culture Action Llandudno) CIC is a Social Enterprise, cementing the innovative partnership between Mostyn Estates and Helfa Gelf Cyf.
Our mission is to facilitate the culture and experience-led regeneration of Llandudno, embedding the arts and cultural development in the long term progression and evolution of the town. We are looking not just at economic and functional goals of regeneration, but the sustainable social and cultural dimensions.
We see this as an opportunity to do something original and exciting which in the long term could lead to the town becoming a key cultural destination in North Wales, benefiting the local economy and attracting cultural tourism.
We are currently one of seven projects across Wales that receive Ideas : people: places funding. The concept of Ideas: People: Places is to work with artists and communities in projects designed to regenerate those areas in an imaginative and ambitious way in line with what the citizens would like to see for themselves. Collaboration is central to that process and the selected projects have a range of interesting and different partnerships at their core. These range from housing associations to commercial land and property owners. More information abut this innovative funding initiative and an insight into the other projects can be viewed here: http://www.arts.wales/77361.
Our vision is to take Llandudno and its “Manau Coll | Lost Spaces” and through thought provoking and exciting programming develop discussion which will ultimately lead to them being reimagined and revitalised in a way that benefits all.
The dialogue we intend to create around these “Manau Coll | Lost Spaces” will become pivotal to the development of urban planning, the cultural offer, opportunities and engagement within the town.
