Arts Council of Wales opens consultation

Kath Davies, the Arts Council’s Director of Investment and Funding Services said:

"This consultation is very important for the Council. Since 1995 we’ve have been acting as a Lottery Funds Distributor and during the past 23 years have funded 13,502 projects across Wales and distributed £287m of Lottery funds.

"Arts Council of Wales has used Lottery funds to support artists and organisations to undertake new and exciting work across Wales and have helped create a network of notable buildings across the nation.

"But nothing stands still, so today we’re beginning one of our most ambitious consultations ever, and we’re inviting everyone in Wales to contribute to it. We’re inviting individuals and organisations to

- submit comments on-line,

- by downloading the document and e-mailing comments to us,

- or through attending one of the 5 public meetings we’re holding in different parts of Wales during the next three months.

"We want to hear everyone’s views, from all backgrounds and areas, and whatever your contact with the arts. YOUR voice really does count!"
