Eisteddfod is a Welsh word that roughly translates to a gathering to listen to poetry, songs and stories. The closest English word is ‘session’ but it is much more than a session. It is a meeting of souls that share the Arts together.
Through developing awareness of stories, poems, music, paintings and arts we develop ourselves spiritually too.
To create art is an outward way of expressing our spirits. It is a way of sharing out thoughts feelings, reflections, attitudes with the wider world. Art can inspire others to make changes to their lives, it is great for our own mental health too.
