Something for Something

The exhibition ‘Something for Something’ launched by Barnardo’s Cymru was held at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff on Wednesday 13th November 2013.

This event was the result of collaboration between Valley and Vale Community Arts and Barnardo’s and focused on young people’s experiences, relationships, the dangers of sexual exploitation, and how therapeutic arts helped them to process traumatic events.

The project involved workshops held over a ten week period and focused on young people talking about their experiences around growing up, relationships and the dangers of sexual exploitation. Through art, music and poetry the young people were encouraged to not only express themselves and their feelings but reflect on other young people’s experiences.
