Big shout out to everyone who came down to our Roath state of mind exhibition launch on Friday. It was really good to see you all there, and thanks to Waterloo Teahouse for putting on such a wonderful spread for our party! It was also nice to meet some new friends and see some new faces – including a couple of Penylan councillors and local MP, Jenny Willott.
Thanks to all your generosity in purchasing raffle tickets, we made a massive £273! Thank you all so much. That will cover the printing costs for the exhibition and go in the pot towards our documentary film that we are making about Cardiff. For more information on that, visit the We Are Cardiff: Portrait of a City blog.

We also need to give a big thanks to everyone who donated raffle prizes or just helped out in anyway… in no particular order:
Don’t forget the exhibition is there until 2 July – Waterloo Gardens Teahouse is one of the nicest independent tea shops in Cardiff, so we definitely recommend setting aside a few hours to go enjoy some of their delicious teas and have a nose at our exhibition!

Here are a few sneak peeks at the new We are Cardiff exhibition at the Pierhead, Cardiff Bay, running until 9th September 2011. Hope you can make it!
It’s our birthday – and you’re invited!
See you there, yeah?
The rather wonderful Big Little City project that has been underway at the Cardiff Story Museum is having its Phase Three Launch party on Wednesday 22 June 2011, from 5-7pm. We’ll be there – with a refreshed We Are Cardiff display – and hope you can make it too!
Excuse the lack of a We Are Cardiff story today … the hackflash minions (who run this website) are hard at work setting up the first ever We Are Cardiff retrospective!
It’s forming part of the BigLittleCity project at The Cardiff Story – the new museum dedicated to the capital of Wales.
We will be displaying photography and stories from We Are Cardiff so far, and inviting you to write your own Cardiff stories to add to our Story Wall in the gallery. We’ll be changing the display every couple of weeks, so make sure you stop by often to see what’s new!
BigLittleCity will be having its grand opening on Thursday 14 April, 5pm til late! After that We Are Cardiff will be exhibiting and inviting you to interact until 22 July!
BigLittleCity is a celebration of Cardiff and Cardiff’s creative talent for photography, art, film, writing, music and performance, animation, illustration, painting and graffiti. BigLittleCity is about the city and the experience of its residents and as such we are extremely focused on collaboration. The team has been invited to stage a four-month exhibition to help launch Cardiff’s prestigious new people’s museum The Cardiff Story at the Old Library building, The Hayes, in the heart of our city. Opening in March 2011, the BigLittleCity exhibition will showcase everything that is special about the Welsh capital and is set to attract tens of thousands of people. More here: BigLittleCity
