Arts Council of Wales | Confluence


Confluence is a creative collaboration between PLANED, spacetocreate, iDeA Architects, Transition Haverfordwest and Pembrokeshire County Council.

It aims to devise and test new and imaginative ways of working in Haverfordwest, which will bring the community together to inspire and shape the process of urban planning, design and regeneration.

The vision is that in ten years time the ancient port of Haverfordwest will have been re-imagined as a vibrant and distinctive market town, reconnected with its river, in full flow and charged by the creativity of its people.

The aim is for Haverfordwest to become a model for arts led regeneration of small towns in Wales

Alongside an ambitious 3-year programme of artist residencies and commissions, Confluence is orchestrating the Lab - an evolving programme of experimental and creative projects, bringing stakeholders together in new constellations, inspired by exemplary practice in the arts, urban design, planning and regeneration.
