“Closely yet uncertainly connected….”
Aled Singleton with Marega Palser
You are invited on a psycho-geographic walk around the village lasting approximately three hours.
On this walk we tap into the flows of Caerleon: how the river and hills inspired romantic writing and what housing estates and pavements mean for everyday life during the past half century.
Aled will locate parts of his own Caerleon childhood of the eighties alongside the experiences of people who moved here in the sixties and seventies. Come and wander with us, we’ll consider how people are attached to place in their emotions and memories. As Raymond Williams wrote: “We are closely yet uncertainly connected..” Bring a packed lunch and water.
Aled is a PhD researcher and curator of place-based projects. This event is supported by Swansea University and the Economic and Social Research Council.
