The Girl Who Wouldn’t Give Up is a Cardiff-wide storytelling and street art project exploring the power of individuals and communities to create incredible change.


Our plan was to hold a fantastic week of artwork, performance, and celebration in late May. As we’re now unable to do this we’re thinking about how to bring together the creations we know are in progress around the city.

We’re also very aware that many of the things we had planned - including filling the windows of houses with lovely artwork and photography contests - have been happening throughout lockdown and we don’t want to detract from anything that’s been taking place or overwhelm anyone with new projects at this time.

We are now hoping to hold a one day celebration event in early spring 2021. We’d would love for everyone to keep making artwork, music, performances and other creations inspired by The Girl Who Wouldn’t Give Up, and we’ll have some news regarding a community art project coming in August. And don't forget to check out our Guardian Creature design challenge!
