Organisation: Celf o Gwmpas

Region: Mid & West Wales

Artform: Cross Artform

Welcoming: Learning Disability

Opportunity Summary:

Creative Steps is an initiative launched by Arts Council Wales (ACW) to get a wider range of high quality artistic work created and presented in Wales, by a wider range of people. Through the programme, ACW are supporting Celf o Gwmpas to develop and deliver an exchange programme for disabled artists between Scotland, England and Wales, building partnerships with other organisations that have a reputation for high quality work. The initial planning and research will include partner organisation visits and symposia to inform the development of a full 3 year programme. As well as fully involving the disabled artists in the research, the project will enable them to work with Celf and a consultant to establish their own Artists Forum to take the project forward. Please contact the organisation for further information.
