My goal

To keep the process simple and help you realize your vision
How can I help you?

As writer and creative director of G-riots arts,
I draw on 30 years of digital media, promotion, journalism, club and private event music programming, event organising and radio broadcast experience. As I am an artist myself and support other artists, a percentage of earnings goes towards organising occasional local events. You can reach me directly at marva@griotsarts.com

The Story of G-riots arts

G-riots arts is based in the Brecon Beacons in Wales, near Hay-on-Wye and the Golden Valley, offering bespoke web platform development solutions, social media consulting and virtual admin services, working independently or with other creatives.

I help you coordinate simple effective digital foundations and online presence.
