There is a tale about Queen Victoria using a bathing machine for the first time and thoroughly enjoying the experience until she put her head under the water and felt as though she would be stifled!
Llandudno’s Bathing Machines lined the sea edge in their heyday. A real attraction for the day trippers and tourists which is why, when LLAWN began, we wanted to place the Bathing Machines at the heart of the festival.
This year CaLL invited proposals from artists “to take a closer look at Llandudno and what makes it work..’; and 3 proposals have been chosen to be part of LLAWN05. This is one of them:
Artists Becca Thomas and Clare Charles invite you to make your own screenprinted postcard of Llandudno, and, on its back answering the question ‘who are we here now?’ Or, who are YOU here? You’ll be invited to take a fresh look at Llandudno, whether you’re a resident or visitor, and consider your relationship to the town, its best bits and those not so good – and how you think it should be represented.
This project has been commissioned by CALL and supported by Ideas:people:Places funding.
