Crossed Paths was an Arts Council Wales-funded project by Miranda Whall, an interdisciplinary contemporary artist and lecturer within Aberystwyth University’s School of Art. The project offered a unique perspective on the uplands, and what it means to be immersed in the landscapes found there. Miranda collected Go-Pro footage from multiple perspectives as she crawled along sheep paths from the heather moorlands around Pen-y-Garn to the offices at Pwllpeiran.

Staff from Pwllpeiran were involved in the North-West Europe INTERREG project RE-DIRECT (REgional Development and Integration of unused biomass wastes as REsources for Circular products and economic Transformation). For Wales, there was particular interest in using unwanted and invasive plant species such as bracken, rushes and Molinia (purple moor-grass).
The Cambrian Mountains Initiative is a wide-ranging project that aims to help promote rural enterprise and add value to products and services in Mid Wales. The project was instigated by HRH Prince of Wales who, as its President, wishes to sustain traditional upland farms, rural communities and the natural environment. Two members of Cambrian Mountains Initiative staff are based at Pwllpeiran.
