1mile2 Cardiff

1mile² Cardiff 2011

1mile² Cardiff launches with the arrival of photographer Mahesh Shantaram.

1mile² Cardiff is a new arts, environment and community programme that inspires people to explore their neighbourhoods. Taking place in Butetown, Grangetown and Splott until October, the project invites local people to participate in activities and events. Professional and community dancers will create new work, inspired by the square mile and in response to local and global cultural and environmental issues.


Renowned photographer Mahesh Shantaram from Bangalore will travel to Cardiff to work with the local team and Cardiff’s communities to explore their square mile. Mahesh's practice uses the techniques of landscape photography to tell stories about people and the public spaces they inhabit. He has exhibited across India and Europe and is a finalist in the 2011 Sony World Photography Awards, Arts & Culture category.

1mile² Cardiff is delivered in partnership with Cardiff Council’s Arts Active and Carbon Lite initiatives, Wales Millennium Centre and Visiting Arts and is supported by the Arts Council of Wales and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
