Engage And Scribble

9 Sep

RSA1

 

Husb was pitching an idea at the RSA Engage event at Swansea’s Cinema & Co this evening. The RSA is holding 20 Engage events across the UK which give people an opportunity to pitch an idea they want to develop in their local community, to get support from an informed audience and make new connections to get their idea off the ground. There were 9 ideas pitched this evening, all of them excellent.

Of course, I had a scribble!

Husb pitched his notion to fill the enormous roof of Swansea Market with stained glass. He did a spoof mock-up for the cover of his recently published book but the image has generated such a lot of interest that he decided to see if there was any possibility in moving the idea forward. There is! He now has some advisors and collaborators on board.

 

Swansea Market is the largest covered market in Wales and the roof is an enormous single span steel and glass construction. There has been a market in Swansea since the 1600s and one on this site since 1830. The present one was built in 1961 as the previous one was destroyed by bombs in World War 2.
