in the Autumn of 2010 the Brunel Festival Association, supported by spacetocreate, a Pembrokeshire based community arts organisation, Pembrokeshire County Council and the Milford Haven Port Authority will be running a community arts festival under the tiltle Migration: Echoes and traces.

The festival begins at the end of August with an 8 week storytelling project, and builds up to a celebration of community arts at the end of October that will include a showcase for a variety of projects including: "Salt in the Air" - a Sea shanties project; "Hands up for Neyland"- a temporary public art project to bring the town to life with a set of 10 colourful flags and "The way we see it"- a Photography project exploring the perspectives of young people. The week-long festival running from Friday October 22-29 will also host a range of exhibitions and events to get everyone involved.
