Arts Council of Wales | National Advisers

National Advisers

What are National Advisers?

We utilise a network of National Advisers to ensure that our Council and our Staff are well informed, balanced in our views and aware of the full diversity of contemporary creative activity.

It’s also important that we’re familiar with the latest developments and thinking in the arts, in Wales and further afield.

National Advisers are people who give voluntarily of their time to assist us, and their peers, in developing the quality of the arts in Wales.

Read a full list of our current National Advisers here.

Become a National Adviser

Do you feel passionate about the arts in Wales? Are you prepared to offer your ideas, experience and expertise to develop new opportunities for people across Wales to enjoy and take part in the arts?

If your answer to these questions is "yes" we, Arts Council of Wales, are recruiting for new advisers at present, the closing date for application is 31 August, 2015. Download the prospectus, list of specialisms and application form on the top right hand side of this page.

2014 saw the publication of Inspire, our outline strategy for the arts in Wales through to 2020. The ethos of this strategy is to Make excellent art, Reach larger audiences and Sustain the life of the arts in Wales.

At this time we are particularly looking to build up our advisers in Arts in the context of Equalities and Diversity, Arts and Education (and more generally Arts and Young People), Arts and Sustainability, Arts and Research. We need to improve our spread of Advisers across Wales and we need more Welsh speaking arts advisers. We are also looking for some advisers from beyond Wales to offer benchmarking from elsewhere. We are also recruiting Advisers particularly for our Advisory Committee on Cymru yn Fenis/ Wales in Venice (our Venice Art Biennale presence.)
