Autumn 2021 – Update | Hydref 2021 – Diweddariad

This winter will see Artis Community Cymuned move into our new home at Pontypridd YMCA. This will be a very exciting time for the organisation, our partners and participants alike as we prepare to make the big move from our current office in Treforest. With this in mind, and considering the current uncertainties around Covid-19 restrictions, we’ve decided to delay the start of our Autumn term but still very much look forward to starting activity once we’re settled into the wonderful new space at Pontypridd YMCA. We really can’t wait to show you around!

This doesn’t mean that you can’t get involved now, however. Here at Artis we have recently launched a new volunteer scheme called Creative Ambassadors and we are very keen to hear from members of the community who would like to be involved and help us build towards the opening. You can find out more by visiting the website here: or if you would like to message us with any queries please email:

Keep an eye out also for our new Artis Outdoors events this summer, where we’ll be connecting creatively with nature again in the great outdoors. More info on that coming soon!

Also, in the coming weeks we will be announcing the new name for the building as well as unveiling the public artwork, a collaboration between community groups and artists Heinrich and Palmer, across the glass façade that sits along the entire top floor of the building. We also have other exciting announcements to come that include a new café, nursery and a performance programme in the studio theatre. So please watch this space!

We want to take this opportunity to thank our supporters and we very much look forward to welcoming you all, alongside our partners at Pontypridd YMCA, Arts Council Wales, Moondance Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation and RCT Council, to the new Pontypridd YMCA.

For all enquiries please contact us at – we would love to hear from you! Visit for all of our latest news.
