The Arts Council of Wales: making the arts central to the life and wellbeing of the nation. 

The Arts Council of Wales is an independent charity, established by Royal Charter in 1994. We’re the official body that funds and develops the arts in Wales.

The money we distribute comes from both the Welsh Government and The National Lottery. Most of our funding goes to artists and arts organisations carrying out programmes of work across Wales.  

We help people to make, present and exhibit the arts. We work with artists and organisations to reach as many people as we can. And we research the ways we can protect and sustain creative activities in Wales. Sometimes we also run our own projects, especially where these explore new areas of arts activity, or help us to persuade other organisations to take an interest in the arts. We have partnerships with schools, NHS hospitals and health boards, Natural Resources Wales, other Arts Councils across the UK, to name but a few. 

Finding new ways of encouraging more people, and a wider range of people, to enjoy and take part in the arts is at the heart of our mission. We’re challenging ourselves as an organisation, our portfolio of revenue funded companies, and those we support in the wider arts sector to attach greater importance to equalities. Our Strategic Equality Action Plan outlines how we will achieve this. 

Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru: gwneud y celfyddydau yn ganolog i fywyd a lles y genedl. 

Elusen annibynnol yw Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru, ac fe’i sefydlwyd drwy Siarter Frenhinol ym 1994. Ni yw’r corff swyddogol sy’n ariannu ac yn datblygu’r celfyddydau yng Nghymru. 

Mae’r cyllid rydyn ni’n ei ddosbarthu yn dod oddi wrth Lywodraeth Cymru a’r Loteri Genedlaethol. Mae’r rhan fwyaf o’n cyllid yn mynd i artistiaid a sefydliadau celfyddydol sy’n gwneud rhaglenni o waith ledled Cymru.   

Rydym yn cynorthwyo pobl i greu, cyflwyno ac arddangos celfyddyd. Rydym yn gweithio gydag artistiad er mwyn cyrraedd cymaint â phosib o bobl. Rydym yn diogelu, a chynnal gweithgarwch creadigol yng Nghymru. Weithiau rydyn ni hefyd yn cynnal ein prosiectau ein hunain, yn arbennig lle mae’r rhain yn archwilio meysydd newydd o weithgarwch celfyddydol neu’n ein helpu i ddwyn perswâd ar sefydliadau eraill i ddangos diddordeb yn y celfyddydau.  Mae gennym bartneriaethau ag ysgolion, ysbytai’r GIG a byrddau iechyd, Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru, Cynghorau Celfyddydau eraill ledled y DU, i enwi dim ond rhai. 

Mae darganfod ffyrdd newydd i annog rhagor o bobl, ac amrywiaeth ehangach o bobl, i fwynhau a chymryd rhan yn y celfyddydau yn ganolog i’r uchelgais hon. Felly rydyn ni’n herio ein hunain, y sefydliadau allweddol rydyn ni’n cyllido, a’r partneriaid hynny rydyn ni’n gweithio gyda nhw, i roi mwy o bwys i’n hymgyrch i greu Cymru sy’n fwy cyfartal. Mae ein cynllun Camau Gweithredu Cydraddoldeb Strategol yn amlinellu sut byddwn yn cyflawni hyn.
