Tanio Arts Project



M-SParc is working with artists in order to take science into the local community. Art is becoming an increasingly popular way to help people engage with the Sciences, and as companies strive to become more innovative, creative, and ahead of the curve, the gap between science and art is narrowing. The ‘Tanio’ arts project brings 6 artists together on different strands to create something special.

The work was showcased at the National Eisteddfod 2017. We were in the Science and Technology Pavilion. Did you come along and say hello? If so, you might find your image in the photo booth, below!

Rachel Rosen and Rebecca Coley-Jones- Ignite

Rachel8 Rachel3 Rachel9

Rachel and Rebecca attended the Eistedffod to showcase the work done with Coleg Menai on recycling and reusing waste materials from a construction site. Rachel has created moulds and casts from these materials, and children had great fun interacting with them, and coming up with their own ideas for renewables.

Manon Awst, an artist from Anglesey, will be managing the Tanio project. With a background in architecture, Manon has worked in London and Berlin, and now lives in Caernarfon while she completes a PhD at Bangor University. As part of the Tanio project, Manon will also be developing an artwork with the architects who designed the building, FaulknerBrowns.

Honey Jones-Hughes is a Welsh artist, making work that encourages discussion around social and political issues. Her Tanio project, ‘Match’, involves working with scientist and academics to explore the journeys women have taken within science and industry in Wales.

Owen Davies, a lecturer at Bangor University, is working on ‘Pi’ in collaboration with local furniture maker Tom Vousten. This aspect focuses on working with three primary schools to developing an exciting artwork that bridges the digital and hand crafted, which will be housed both at M-SParc and Techniquest Glyndwr.


Iolo Penri, a photographer from Caernarfon, will explore the relationship between energy, industry and landscape on Anglesey. This ‘Flach’ element of the project will come together with the help of local community photography clubs.

Rachel Rosen, working on ‘Ignite’, focuses on the transformation of materials and objects. Collaborating with zero-waste expert Rebecca Coley-Jones, she will research opportunities for re-igniting and reusing waste from the M-SParc construction site. Rachel will also hold a series of workshops with Coleg Menai students. M-SParc itself has a focus on reducing waste, and this will continue when operational with a building that is energy efficient and considerate to the environment.



Mei Mac will focus on the ‘Splash’ element. A graphic designer and cartoonist, Mei Mac will collaborate with pupils from Ysgol Esceifiog in Gaerwen to develop a series of poems and slogans which will be displayed within the first building. It is important that children are allowed to help collaborate on the design of this flagship building, as M-SParc hopes to inspire them and show that it is possible for them to develop high-level careers here in North Wales when they are older.
