Wall Wen / White Wall

Wal Wen (White Wall) is a curated platform enabling large-scale projection of video, photography, animation and moving image onto the vast white walls of Pontio's public spaces, providing audiences with experiences that provoke, inspire and entertain.

Northern Eye Festival is pleased to be working with both Pontio and Coleg Llandrillo’s photography department to curate a small out of town exhibition as part of the festival fringe.


Pontio is Bangor University’s new arts and innovation centre and is approx 30 minutes drive from Colwyn Bay (Address: Pontio, Bangor University, Deiniol Road, Bangor, LL57 2TQ)

Photography on the White Wall 

Photography projected on the evenings of all performances of: Y CYLCH SIALC (Tuesday 15 October 7.30pm / Wednesday 16 October 7.30pm / Thursday 17 October 7.30pm / Friday 18 October 7.30pm

Brecht encouraged his audiences to think – he didn’t want them to ‘hang up their brains with their hats in the cloakroom’. A showreel of contemporary photography by students from Coleg Llandrillo seeks to do the same, responding to themes arising from the production of Y Cylch Sialc, such as ‘power’, ‘injustice’, ‘rights’ and ‘ownership’.

Forming part of the Northern Eye Photography Festival Fringe, the showreel will be projected onto Pontio’s vast White Wall on performance evenings.


Curated by Mererid Hopwood, Paul Sampson (Northern Eye Photography Festival) and Tim Williams (Coleg Llandrillo).

Der kaukasische Kreidekreis (The Caucasian Chalk Circle) by Bertolt Brecht

Revolution is in the air and a city burns. A baby is abandoned in the chaos.

A young woman risks everything to save the child. With the country torn apart by war and soldiers hot on their heels, she resolves to protect him at all costs. But in a corrupt world, is love enough?
