Exhibitions at the Senedd showcase the very best of Wales, ranging from partnerships with key national organisations to projects developed with Welsh communities.
City Stories: Photographs of Cardiff 1969-1977
Pete Davis’ photographs of Cardiff were taken at a time when the steelworks was closing and the area was being redeveloped. Over fifty years later, they offer new audiences the opportunity to reflect on a time and place that changed both visually and culturally. Sponsored by Elin Jones MS. Dates: 1 October – 8 December.
Us Here Now
Us Here Now is a celebration of people in East Cardiff; their stories and their power. At the end of Summer 2020, artist Jon Pountney and Common Wealth worked with people who live, work or are from St Mellons, Llanrumney and Trowbridge to capture a snapshot of life in the sunshine. Sponsored by Vaughan Gething MS. Dates: 13 July – 24 September.

About exhibitions at the Senedd
When the Senedd building first opened four artists were commissioned to provide sculptures to form part of the architecture of the building. More recently, Welsh artist Angharad Pearce Jones was commissioned to create two sculptures for the Senedd’s main public spaces to allow people to connect and learn about the Senedd and the Members who represent them.
