Penarth Youth Action create community art mural at Penarth’s Summer Carnival

Children and young people in Penarth recently took part in an art workshop in efforts to raise awareness of The Kymin grounds.

On Sunday 15 July, members of PYA ran a creative workshop at the summer carnival in Penarth, to raise awareness of the work they have done, and together, children and young people created a piece of art work for Kymin Grounds.

A recent consultation on how to best use the Kymin Grounds community building, revealed that a total of 263 young people from Penarth wanted more concerts and festivals, themed activities, outdoor activities and a community art space in their town.

Members of PYA thanked the team at The Hold Up, a group of artists based in south Wales, for their help on the day.

The finished mural by Penarth Youth Action.
