Applications are now open for Creative Wales Awards from ACW...
Creative Wales Awards are to support artists’ development and are made in all artforms. They’re intended to give space and time for an artist who’s already had career achievements, to undertake creative experimentation and research to inform their future practice, but not necessarily to deliver defined and predetermined outcomes.
A Creative Wales Award allows an individual artist’s vision to be explored, tested and reimagined without the need to create a �?final’ performance or exhibition, but recipients will have shown how their exploration will make a contribution to the development of the arts in Wales. Creative Wales puts a premium on artists with innovative new approaches and understandings.
What grants are available?
Creative Wales Awards
These grants of up to £12,000 will support an intensive period of open-ended learning and research. This can include up to £2,000 towards a proposal-specific capital element.
Major Creative Wales Awards
