Artes Mundi worked in partnership with Valleys Kids:  a community development and arts organisation working in the South Wales Valleys for over 40 years, and Trivallis (formerly RCT Homes) the main social housing provider in the area.

In addition to the lead artists, many other artists have been involved in the project as visitors, critical friends and through smaller commissions within the overall project.
