Objects of Comfort  
Amgueddfa Cymru’s #ObjectsOfComfort shares museum objects, information and discussion points to foster feelings of wellbeing: Objects of Comfort | National Museum Wales. For generations food has been a source of comfort, being at the centre of happy occasions and evoking good memories, bringing family and friends together and creating new experiences. Join us as we share food related objects from the collection.  

Food & Art  
#ArtandFood will peruse the Amgueddfa Cymru Art Collection menu to look at how food and drink has been depicted across the centuries. A veritable feast of oysters, wine, beer, cheese and plenty of fruit; food in art is not only about the eating. Also featuring articles from the Art, Food and the Environment edition of Cynfas.
