Arts and the Well-being of Future Generations

How the arts support the ambitions of the Well-being of Future Generations Act.


Art supports futures... are you in?

Art achieves great things in our local communities across Wales. It brings people together, improves mental and physical wellbeing, creates jobs and makes villages, towns and cities great places to live, work and visit.

It might not be something that you’ll always think about, or even consciously notice, but Art is central to our everyday quality of life and the wellbeing of our nation. A dynamic, prosperous, creative Wales is vital for all our futures. The Arts make Wales a better place.

Meeting the goals of the Well-being of Future Generations Act

We want to work with you to improve the wellbeing and life of our nation through the Arts. By investing in the Arts you can achieve all seven goals of the Well-being of Future Generations Act. Together we can make a positive difference to the future generations of Wales.

As a partner in the delivery of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 we take this responsibility seriously and have already had productive contact with many Public Service Boards across Wales.
