Next week the Cyfrwng Conference will be held in Swansea University on the 12 and 13 of July. The theme for this year’s conference will be the relationship between literature and the media within Small Nations. During the conference, a variety of presentations, workshops and several discussion panels will be held especially to debate this theme.
Among this year’s highlights will be Dave Berry’s Memorial Lecture, which will discuss ‘Animating Literature’ with ex-Director of Animation at S4C, Chris Grace, and Producer on Mabinogi, Naomi Jones. Another highlight will be a discussion between Ed Thomas, Dafydd James and Rhodri Davies on how one of the most successful theatre plays of recent years,Llwyth by Dafydd James, will be adapted for the small screen.
The conference’s main highlight will be the Cyfrwng Award which will be presented to John Hefin who has made an outstanding contribution to mass media in Wales. The award will be presented in a dinner at Morgans Hotel, Swansea on Thursday, 12 July 2012 at 7.30pm.
