The state of play: Investment Review 2015: an interim statement from Arts Council of Wales


Following the closing date for applications, we’ve been busy collating and organising the information ready for the next stage in our Investment Review process.

We thought it might be interesting at this stage to share some of the headline data with you:

  • in total, 94 applications were received, including requests 26 from organisations who aren’t currently part of the portfolio.
  • the total funding requested for 2016/17 is £32.798m. This is an increase of £5.64m (+17%) over the current year’s figure of £27.157m
  • of the £5.64m, £3.125m has been requested by new applicants

This document lists all of the organisations who have submitted an application.


Please note that we have amended the date that trustees need to be in post in our eligibility criteria. Organisations with at least five trustees/directors by 21 May 2015 will now be eligible.

Please see the revised Terms of Reference for further information.


The Investment Review application process is now open.

The response to consultation is now published.

Making an Appeal and the Appeal Form are open for consultation.
