This fund is to support not-for-profit arts organisations loss of income, as well as cash flow pressures resulting from the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority will be those organisations facing the most immediate and acute financial challenges.
Our nation‑wide network of arts organisations are at the heart of cultural life across Wales. Some organisations are members of our Arts Portfolio Wales, reflecting the year‑round nature of their activities. However, many more outside the Portfolio also play a critical role in providing opportunities for us to enjoy and take part in the arts.
The fund opens for applications from Tuesday 21 April 2020 until Friday 8 May 2020 however, in exceptional circumstances, including higher than anticipated demand, we may need to close the application process early. ACW hope to be able to make decisions within 4 weeks of the deadline. Arts Portfolio Wales organisations and organisations outside the Portfolio will be able to apply for support.
A parallel fund for individuals is also in operation - find out more here about the Stabilisation Fund for Individuals.
