Parry & Glynn explore the ability of artists - or anyone - to declare cultural space which is then publicly inhabited. They work locally and internationally in friendly and accessible ways, using live music and drawing, lecture recitals, public installations, happenings, conferences, papers and conversational artefacts.

Chris Glynn is an illustrator, musician and Senior Lecturer at Cardiff School of Art and Design. RM Parry is an activist, singer and thinker working on projects where discovery may be more important than promotion. Parry and Glynn are the creative directors of the Coleridge in Wales project.

“…perhaps it may even appear after consideration, that persons themselves are the wealth... perhaps even that the final outcome and consummation of all wealth is in the producing as many as possible full-breathed, bright-eyed, and happy human creatures." 

-  John Ruskin, ‘Unto this Last’
