Dylan Thomas 100 Launch in New York

February 2014 saw the celebrations of Dylan Thomas’s centenary in New York City kick off with events organised by Wales Arts International, Welsh Government and British Council.

Wales Arts International hosted an event at Nuyorican Poets Café in which Cerys Matthews and US writer Kevin Powell took the audience on a journey through Dylan Thomas’s legacy with Welsh musicians Patrick Rimes and Gwenan Gibbard, alongside a whole host of New York based poets and musicians. The event also played host to the launch of the Dylan Thomas Prize 2014 – a prize for published authors under 30.
