Blaengar is an Aberystwyth-based not-for-profit arts organisation, whose principal objective is to provide a forum for dialogue and collaboration. Formed in 2006 by a small group of emerging artists, Blaengar aims to stage events and exhibitions outside the traditional gallery space, and the projects – which include performance, installation and new media – take place in the landscape and built environments of mid-Wales. Previous projects include Interaction, an exhibition of public art surrounding Aberystwyth's promenade and museum (which will be continued in summer 2009); and Spoilio, a site-specific work at Llywernog Silver and Lead Mine near Ponterwyd. Future projects include a site-specific installation in partnership with Ceredigion Museum and a local youth group; and an international project with three Balkan artists, touring to Croatia, Serbia, Italy and Wales.
