Gwallgofiaid is a not for profit social enterprise that has been providing creative training for the young people of Blaenau Ffestiniog since 2003.
Gwallgofiaid use 2 spaces in Cellb (the old police station of Blaenau) where workshops in creative arts and media are facilitated.
The Cinema, owned and run by Gwallgofiaid, is a not for profit initiative & the company’s goal is for the surlpus from the cinema to subsidise the cost of the arts workshops.
