Illumine is a year-long digital arts training project for young people or ‘Image Makers’ (16-25 years) that is managed and coordinated by Peak on behalf of Powys County Council.


Having commenced in Spring 2018, the Image Makers are working with artists and industry professionals to create original digital content for ‘y Gaer’, Brecon’s new cultural hub, through workshops, masterclasses, residencies, studio visits and location shoots.

The vision for Illumine is to inspire visitors to y Gaer to explore and engage with the unique places and qualities of the region. The new content will be displayed and shared across a range of platforms at y Gaer after its opening in Winter 2018.

Image Makers will reimagine the Brecon Beacons region and wider area, using a range of digital media that will include but aren’t limited to filmmaking / photography / animation / installation / light.  Themes such as history, culture, language, events and people of the area will be explored by artists and the Image Makers to respond to.

Illumine is a unique opportunity for young people to gain an insight into the creative sector and have hands-on experience to add to CVs.
