Serena Korda has been appointed as our first Artist in residence and will begin work in early June building towards a performance at the end of August 2015.

Serena’s proposal, “Black Diamond”, will combine the history and mythology of the Western Cleddau River to create a Rave music track with the people of Haverfordwest. Developed through conversations, encounters and recordings of local professional and amateur musicians interacting with the river and its surrounding banks. “Black Diamond” will harness the sonic power of the river from water drumming to field recordings whilst drawing upon the strong history of the early 90’s underground rave scene in Wales and the UK.
