Who are we?


The Escape Artists (North Wales) is a community organisation making access to the arts easier for people who are furthest away from them.

Started in 2014, by two journalist colleagues – a writer and a photographer- we now have a fantastic team of artists, working in a wonderful range of media.

We  all really love what we do and want to share that with others.

2020 will be our seventh year running the Altered Images art project at Ty Newydd Approved Premises, in Bangor.  Altered Images is one of five projects chosen to take part in Gwynedd Council’s evaluation of the health and wellbeing benefits of the arts, in conjunction with Bangor University.

We also  ran our first Writing Competition for men and women from Wales who are in the prison and probation system. We are thrilled to have Welsh poet Laureate Ifor ap Glyn, playwright Rachel Tresize, and author and Radio 4 presenter, Horatio Clare as our panel of judges.

Meanwhile, our Still Life art group, started in Conwy, in October 2018, is growing and flourishing, as is our Still Lifegroup in Rhos on Sea, which started in July 2019.
