We are ambitious for the arts in Wales, and want the scheme to support quality work. We want to invest in projects that represent the very best of the arts in Wales.
The Arts Grants for Organisations: Getting Started document has all the information you need to know if you’re thinking of making an application to Arts Grants for Organisations.
It will help you with the first important step: identifying whether our funding is right for your organisation and your project. It will also tell you the types of activity we want to support. We call these "strands". There’s specific guidance available for each strand and we’ll tell you how to find this later.
Getting Started: Arts Grants for Organisations(336k)
Only organisations can apply to this scheme.
The questionnaire below will help you work out if you can apply for Arts Grants for Organisations. Make sure you’ve read the Getting Started guide before answering the questions.
A lot of the questions are about governance. By this we mean how your organisation is set up, what it is set up to do and how it works. If you need some help with these issues you may find our Information Sheet about governance helpful.
If you make any misleading or false statements on this questionnaire you may have to repay any grant we award you.
Once you’ve completed the questionnaire you can read more information about each strand.
