Archive Exhibition

Public Opening: 1223 DecemberJust under a year ago, a dedicated team of volunteers, board and staff members came together with a shared dream of assembling our brilliantly chaotic history to create an official NoFit State Archive. They began by pulling together materials both physical and digital to create a timeline of NoFit State's history, detailing the incredible story that has seen us blossom into the UKs leading international contemporary circus company. As we approach our 30th birthday and say goodbye to our John Street building, we are launching an earchive website and physical exhibition at our Four Elms building on Friday 11 December (with a public opening on the 12th) and JOURNEYS, a weekend of performance and installation that celebrates our shared history and community. This has been a mammoth task for all those involved and we want to thank them for all their hard work over the past year; it really means a lot to us! The project has been funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund with support from Glamorgan Archives, The Cardiff Story Museum and the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales. For all the archivists, historians and archaelogists reading this blog, you'll be interested to know that when the exhibition comes to an end, all paper artefacts will be kept at the Glamorgan Archives and a curated selection of the 3D objects (props, gear, costumes) will go to The Cardiff Story Museum as a permanent reminder of NoFit States connection to the city.
