the light project Light in dark places

Recognising the clear need for regeneration investment in Treharris, the Thomas Fredrick Willetts Foundation has developed The Light project, which is designed to empower to the community of Treharris and the Taf Valley, bringing renewed identity to those communities that have lost their distinctiveness.

As traditional industries have disappeared, the area has been in steady decline. But now there is an opportunity to rediscover the unique identity of the place, through the power of the creative industries.

Just as a miners’ lamps once lit up the darkness of the mine, providing light to work by, now the illuminating power of the arts and creativity provides a new season of opportunity.

You can play your part by carrying your own light to transform society, get involved and help us.
