Arts Council of Wales | How we're Governed

How we're Governed

As a Welsh Government Sponsored Body (WGSB) we work within a strategic framework agreed with the Welsh Government.


Our strategic direction, along with the Welsh Government financial resources to deliver an agreed programme of work, is outlined in our annual Remit Letter.


Arts Council of Wales also appoints a structure of committees to provide specialist advice and to make decisions within a framework of delegated powers.

Principles and Standards

The delivery of our day-to-day services as a public body is framed by a set of guiding principles. These include our openness policy and corporate policies.

We report internally on our performance against our service standards, and externally to our major investor, the Welsh Government.

A Practical Guide to Governance in the Arts and Museums

Governance in the arts and museums: a practical guide has been created by The Clore Leadership Programme as a toolkit of useful resources for Trustees and staff who work with boards. Read more about it here.
