Creative Wales Ambassador Awards 2016/17

What is a Creative Wales Ambassador Award?

Our annual Creative Wales Ambassadors awards are an extension of our commitment to investing in artists so they can make their best work. They also enable Wales based organisations to support artists on this journey and foster greater levels of international collaboration.

Creative Wales Ambassadors is open to artists who have a strong partnership with a Wales based organisation, who, in turn, have a relationship with an international organisation.
