20th December 2022

Taff has been working with Cardiff and Vale College to produce art work for the site hoardings at our Tudor Street and Agate Street Developments. We asked the Level 3 Art and Design students to create designs that reflected Taff values and within these areas. Taff staff voted for the winning design to go up on the hoarding at Agate Street in January 2023

The runners up were put up along the hoarding at Tudor Street. On Tuesday 20th December, we held an event to showcase the reveal of the designs. Inviting the students to come along to see their amazingly talented work unveiled for the first time. The hoarding surrounds a refurbishment project of 29 homes that Taff is carrying out in Tudor Street, Riverside.

The artworks were unveiled by Taff Housing Chief Executive Helen White and Cardiff Council Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities Cllr Lynda Thorne this week.

We were also joined by Leonora Thomson who attended with representatives from the council as well as members of Taff staff and the Development Team. The students should be incredibly proud of their work- they are a credit to their teachers/tutors.

The event was a great opportunity to discuss the scheme and the future aspirations for Tudor and Agate Street. We highly recommend taking a walk to see the hoarding and admire the hard work which the students have put into their work. 


Here's what some of colleagues had to say...

“We are really impressed with the quality of the artwork produced by the students and thrilled we’ve been able display their work on this key gateway into the city. We challenged the students to design artwork reflecting the topics of diversity, community and unity, with each piece presenting a unique take on this theme. Once the refurbishment works are completed, we hope to find new permanent homes for each piece”
“Using art is proving a great way to promote our values and what is important to us as an association. Working with the students at CAVC, we have had a chance to see how young people view the world, and how they express important social issues. While also making the site hoarding of our Tudor Street refurbishment a fun and creative project”
