GALWAD: A story from our future

A story told in real-time over seven days online, on TV, live from Wales.

26 September 2022 - an electrical storm broke dramatically over Wales. The unthinkable happened - time cracked, the future made contact.

Efa, a 16-year-old girl from Merthyr Tydfil, claimed that more than just messages had made it through from 2052 – she has swapped with her 46-year-old self from 2052. As we followed her live journey across Wales over seven days, she and her teenage friends battled with the dilemma of what to do when faced with your own future. What did 2052 have to tell us and did we listen?

GALWAD took place online and on TV (Sky Arts) from 26 September – 2 October 2022.
