Open for applications

Pontardawe Arts Centre is an important multi-purpose art and cultural centre in the heart of Wales. The beautiful traditional theatre hosts professional work of the highest calibre, from folk, world and blues to classical music, stand up comedy to celebrity talks, dance to drama, literature to children’s events.

Following an open competition Childs Sulzmann Architects have developed a scheme to carry out an extensive refurbishment to the interior of the building and to construct a new extension to provide a dedicated cinema space.

Childs Sulzmann Architects have been developing plans with the Neath and Port Talbot Authority and have submitted a preapplication. As part of the pre-application response particular attention was drawn to the treatment of the external facade of the cinema extension and how this relates to the wider site context.

The client, Neath and Port Talbot Authority would like to appoint an artist to help develop the cinema facades in conjunction with Childs Sulzmann Architects.

The artist will be appointed directly by Neath and Port Talbot Authority but will work closely with Childs Sulzmann Architects to develop the ideas for inclusion in the planning application.

The artist will form a key part of the design team, helping to create a visually striking and engaging facade that will help integrate the building within the local context, both architecturally and culturally.
