BLOG RHYS MWYN – Listen To This ! The Importance Of Culture

By |March 26th, 2020|0 Comments

[orig published in Herald Cymraeg 25 March 2020]

It’s almost impossible to know what to write this week. We face a period of uncertainty beyond any experience in our lives. As the situation and circumstances with the Coronavirus change from day to day and I write at weekends and the column is published on Wednesday, it is difficult to know how much has changed in the meantime. The only thing that is certain is the uncertainty.

It is quite obvious that so many of us in Wales are freelance, small business and self-employed. And a large number of us then within the creative and cultural sectors. Things will be hard. Much of my work and salary is lecturing, guided tours and related archaeology work. So far everything in April and May has been postponed. It may be possible to rearrange some things but much of the work will have been lost.

What a gig and turnout!
The bands could of gone on in any order and it would have worked.
