Arts Council of Wales - Wales Cultural Recovery Funding

Today, Arts Council of Wales opens its Wales Cultural Recovery Fund for applications. Part of the Welsh Government’s £53m emergency fund, the Arts Council will be investing £27.5m to help organisations stay afloat as they face the financial pressures of Covid-19.

The fund is made up of two grants:

Covid-19: Revenue Support for Arts Organisations

Covid-19: Capital Support for Arts Organisations

The Wales Cultural Recovery Fund is jointly administered by the Welsh Government and the Arts Council of Wales. The Arts Council of Wales will allocate £25.5m of revenue funding and £2m of capital to arts organisations.  These organisations can be not‑for‑profit and commercial but must be able to demonstrate they offer publicly accessible arts activity in Wales, and that they have been significantly affected by Covid‑19. The central purpose of this fund is to sustain organisations facing the threat of closure and help them to resume activity in 2021 and beyond.

Those receiving support from this fund will in return be expected to deliver something back to the Welsh public– what is being called the ‘Cultural Contract’.
