Small World Exhibition

News / View & Listen - Posted 25-08-2010

At the moment, I’m working on selecting clips from the Archive’s collection for the ‘Small World’ Exhibition, which will open in the Library in October. I have been searching for audio-visual material which shows how Welsh people have discovered the world.

One of the most interesting films I have found is a welsh film called ‘Prydydd y Paith‘. The film was made by Wil Aaron in 1976. Bryn Williams, who moved from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Patagonia as a 7 year old boy, tells his story and shares his memories of life in the ‘Wladfa’.

The clips which I will select will be shown on a screen in the Exhibition, along with other interesting travelling artifacts from the Library’s collection and beyond.

I really like this aspect of my work, as it gives me an opportunity to familiarise myself with the collection and it will hopefully give those who visit the exhibition a taste of the Archive.
