Richard Huw Morgan has been a professional artist since 1990. In 2014 he completed two major projects in collaboration with his regular work partner John Rowley. The first was an ACW production funded project, “Pitch to the power of 3”, which saw the commissioning of 12 new audio works for radio in drama, poetry and prose. The second was a Dylan Thomas 100 festival commission, “Lleisiau”, a “good cop bad cop” production in collaboration with Chapter, Cardiff. “Lleisiau” involved the presentation of over 50 distinctive, contemporary, Welsh voices to a live and internet audience. Current work includes planning stages of a Wales Millennium Centre commission, under the working title ‘Hen Cymru Arferol / Normal Old Wales’ starting in 2020 and culminating in a large scale site-specific work for the 2022 Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Pontypridd
