Regional Arts and Education Networks

These Networks are at the heart of Creative Learning through the Arts – the new five year arts and education action plan.

The Regional Networks deliver a major strand of the Creative Learning through the Arts Action Plan, the All-Wales Arts and Education Offer.

Who leads the Regional Networks?

In January 2016, we announced four new consortia. They are:

  • North Wales: consortium led by Flintshire County Council
  • Central/South Wales: consortium led by Arts Active Trust
  • Mid and West Wales: consortium led by University of Wales Trinity Saint David
  • South East Wales: consortium led by Caerphilly Borough Council

How do the Networks Work?

The four networks are drawn on the same boundaries as the existing Regional Education Consortia.

The Networks work with schools, the Regional Education Consortia, local authorities and stakeholders in the education, arts, creative, cultural and heritage sectors in these four regions.

The networks will increase and improve arts experiences and opportunities in schools by forging links between:

  • teachers, educationalists and partners from the education sector
  • arts practitioners, arts organisations and venues
  • cultural and heritage organisations and venues such as museums, libraries and archives
  • local authority arts providers, including music services
  • higher education arts and cultural partners
  • the creative industries sector
