Arts Council of Wales is responsible for funding and developing the arts in Wales.
Arts Council of Wales is an independent charity, established by Royal Charter in 1994. Its members are appointed by the Welsh Government’s Minister for Culture and Sport.
Our principal sponsor is the Welsh Government. We also distribute funding from the National Lottery and raise additional money where we can from a variety of public and private sector sources.
We are the country’s funding and development organisation for the arts.
Working together with the Welsh Government, we are able to show how the arts are helping to meet the Government’s policy ambitions.
Our staff members are based in Colwyn Bay, Carmarthen and Cardiff Bay.
Our vision is of a creative Wales where the arts are central to the life of the nation.

Reviewing our organisation
Earlier in the year we undertook a review of our operations and our structure. The aim has been to reduce our running costs, and also to look at the range and type of service that we should be providing in the future.
