About Dominic Williams

Dominic was born in southeast Wales but has made Ferryside his home since 1998.

He lectures in Humanities and Performing Arts at the University of Wales. A poet, a performer and creative mentor, Dominic is one half of the improvised spoken-word and movement act Your Strangest Friend with contemporary dancer Stina Nilsson and part of the FYD Collective, an international group of contemporary artists. His poetry is published in online journals and in the anthologies Red Lamp, Black Piano and Between Somewhere and Nowhere and has been translated into Welsh, Spanish and Swedish. His photo-essay is published in the chap book K. Dominic’s first poetry collection and why we were all going was published in 2017, and a  further collection Galen man på tåget was published in Swedish in 2021. He has also produced a book of creative non-fiction, inspired by letters exchanged between punks in the 1980s.

Dominic’s poetry collections and the local history book that he edited, Carmarthen, are available for sale from the centre. Dominic has worked with Disability Arts Cymru, Wales’ national disability art charity, for over ten years and was the chairman of the board of trustees in 2016.

The poem exhibited in this room, Calon y Bore, was written as an interpretation of a series of images from a walk on Ferryside marshes and beach. The poem captures the hope and optimism of a good day during the recovery process from an extended period of depression and anxiety.
