    It will be a site for the creation of spectacular theatre productions, film, music, circus, dance and other innovative performing arts. The iconic building will build bridges between arts and sciences, the University and the local community, and Bangor and the wider world.

    Construction will be completed in 2013. The project will create hundreds of jobs in North Wales, and develop a stream of new businesses and opportunities for existing companies in the region.

    Pontio will develop ground breaking research and new technologies to change the way we live, and improve our health and environment. Its work will show how digital technologies alter our perception of our selves and our culture. It will provide outstanding facilities for students and transform the way we teach and learn.

    As well as being a cultural beacon for the people of Wales and the Welsh language, Pontio will become a hub for the local community. Its light airy social spaces, leafy parks, relaxing cafes and fantastic outdoor amphitheatre will provide people of all ages with places to meet, greet, or be entertained.
