Beacon Award

Sunrise Over the Mountain

Valley and Vale Community Arts is pleased to announce that we have been successful in our application to the Arts Council of Wales for a Beacon Award. We propose to create an innovative Community Arts for Development programme with our Beacon Company Award – to further strengthen, develop and promote our work.

“This award will enable us to develop and consolidate our reputation as leaders in the field of Community Arts in Wales and beyond. We will use the award to disseminate and share our work and experience with a wider audience, building new networks of cultural exchange and increasing the impact of our work. The award will give us greater capacity to proactively develop dynamic new initiatives for Community Arts in Wales.

We will employ 2 new leading Community Arts practitioners who will work with us to develop new Beacon-status model Community Arts initiatives, extending our strategic aims and ambitions and promoting our work both nationally and internationally”.
