POBL celebrates the people who have shaped the way in which the National Waterfront Museum has evolved and shows how the museum plays an important role as community space.
More than 150 individuals, groups, volunteers and staff took part in this project, all involved with the museum in some way. The result is an exhibition with over 120 portraits and 80 minutes of video interviews that give us an insight into who these people are, what they do and how the National Waterfront Museum connects them all.
The exhibition was commissioned by Amgueddfa Cymru / National Museum Wales. It opened April 13th 2019 and was on display until September 29th 2019.
Celebrating the diversity and inclusivity of Swansea as it marks its 50th year as a city.
