Rhôd is an artist-run project based in rural west Wales. The enduring theme of Rhôd’s activity is the artistic dialogue between rural and urban environments and the ways in which artists can help to think about and interpret those differences and similarities.
Rhôd Artists Group undertakes curatorial projects, community led activities and commissions that reflect the interests of the group members.

RSPB Big Garden Bioblitz
Join RSPB Cymru for a Big Garden Bioblitz on Ninian Road. Using bug pots, magnifying glasses and spotter sheets we’ll be encouraging children and families to hunt for as much wildlife as possible in and around the gardens of Ninian Road, from bugs to plants and trees. We’ll help children to identify and learn a bit more about what they find then count up all of the species they discovered and add their name and score to our Big Garden Bioblitz Leader Board. The child with the highest score at the end of the event will receive a wildlife prize.
This is a FREE family event, suitable for all ages. Drop in anytime 20 & 21 October between 10 am – 4 pm.

The Single Handed Photographer
“Who knows what I’ll be obsessing over by the time October comes round. That’s autism for you. Sometimes I get really into spiders’ hairy legs, or tiny flowers or lingering droplets of water on leaves and spider webs. Recently I’ve mainly been taking pictures of the amazing variety of fungi that have appeared in my garden this year, using an iPhone and a cheap little macro lens. The results are kind of shite and kind of fascinating at the same time. I see things nobody else bothers to look for. I make the invisible visible just by looking for it.
There’s nothing sophisticated or skilful about this, anyone can do it. Just grab your phone, buy a macro lens for it and start seeing the world in a very different way.
Most people say they are doing something ‘single-handed’ when they just mean on their own, I mean it literally. I don’t yet know what I’ll find in the undergrowth of my allocated garden in Roath but I’m excited to find out.”
