Since the summer of 2012 Locws International has been collecting your memories of Swansea and archiving them on a Google map online. Creating a database of stories about Swansea, about the people who grew up here, who live here and the people who visit. This is a way of capturing moments of history and people’s experiences before they are forgotten and lost.
Locws International and Swansea City Centre Management present ‘The Swansea Plinth’ offering the public the opportunity to sample and join in with a wide and diverse range of artistic activities. Local artists, performers and community groups will be sharing their skills as well as highlight the opportunities available to people in Swansea.

Open to the public daily between 10am – 4pm.
So venture into the city centre and get involved! Try out some of the workshops, contribute your memories of Swansea, and create your own artwork to be displayed on the plinth! You will find ‘The Swansea Plinth’ on Oxford Street near Castle Square, there will be different activities each day so there’s plenty of reasons to keep coming back plus it’s free and open for all ages and abilities to join in!
