Icons of Wales: Owain Glyndwr? Dylan Thomas? Gareth Edwards? Who are your Welsh icons?
With BBC Wales and The Open University embarking upon their major new TV series The Story of Wales, the OU want to know who would you chose as your Icon of Wales.
What's special about your icon and how do they feed into ideas about Wales and Welshness? Come to this short session to look at some images and chat with a tutor and other participants. You'll have the opportunity, if you'd like to, to write a short piece about your own Welsh icon.
