Next Monday’s event will be at Volcano Theatre, 27-29 High Street, Swansea between 2 and 4pm.

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

"Our first public event as part of this consultation – at Tŷ Pawb Wrexham, last Friday – was very successful and I’m now looking forward very much to the next event in Swansea.

"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. The outcomes of the consultation will determine the way in which the Council distributes the funds it receives from the sale of National Lottery tickets for the next five years.
