Artists from across Wales helped Community Music Wales to celebrate its 25th anniversary by joining the “Pimp My Uke” challenge. The concept of “Pimp My Uke” is simple. Each artist received a blank ukulele from Community Music Wales which they painted in their own unique styles, and to great effect.
While at our core we are a music charity, we have also been big supporters of all types of community art over the past 25 years. By shining a light on some of the hugely talented artists in Wales, we could also offer a unique piece of art that people can own and play. Through doing this we are also hoping to give something back to the people and communities who have supported us over the past 25 years.
The ukuleles will be on display throughout Wales and will be auctioned off at a later date.
Stay tuned for more information.
