Ceremony of Peace and Blessing




The ceremony was lead by a group of women from Wales, Ireland, Germany, The United States and England and represents a thanksgiving or ‘giveaway’ after completing their own respective Rites of Passage ceremonies in the area throughout the preceding week. Their week long Rite of Passage entitled ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ explored identity, transformation and the power of ceremony. It was part of Creative Wales Award recipient Fern Smith’s residency at Aberystwyth Arts Centre made possible with support from Arts Council of Wales.
