Academi Hywel Teifi and Tafwyl Partnership continues
The partnership between Swansea University's Academi Hywel Teifi and Tafwyl continued once again this year as the popular festival moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic. Established in 2006, Tafwyl is an annual festival celebrating the Welsh language, arts and culture which usually culminates with a number of open-air events in the grounds of Cardiff Castle.
All the Tafwyl Digidol (Digital Tafwyl) events were livestreamed on Saturday 20 June, with Academi Hywel Teifi contributing sessions in the festival's virtual ‘Llais’ (voice) area.
Over 10,000 people joined the event live on the day and many more have watched the sessions back since then. Dr Gwenno Ffrancon, director of Academi Hywel Teifi, said: "Academi Hywel Teifi was very proud to support the Tafwyl Digidol festival by contributing sessions in the virtual Llais area of the festival. This is the fifth year in which we have worked in partnership with this special festival to promote the Welsh language and to share the work and expertise of writers, scholars, alumni and distinguished friends of Swansea University."
