Discover the Valleys’ seeks to inspire and excite people to take a fresh look at the Valleys and their landscapes and heritage, to question their perceptions, and to spur them to rediscover and explore this unique part of the world.

Valleys Regional Park, through one of its partners Groundwork Wales and the WECAN project, and with support of the Arts Council of Wales, commissioned ten artists to create works of art for posters to reach out to achieve those aims.

In the 1930s, when the original, now iconic Shell poster campaigns (one of the inspirations for this project) were originally devised, the Valleys’ landscapes were scarred and ravaged by industrial spoil heaps and waste tips. Nowadays, the hills are largely green again, rivers full of fish run clean, and visitors are often taken aback by the beautiful countryside that envelopes Valleys' towns and villages.
