Conwy Arts Service facilitates and delivers arts events and projects throughout the county. These include the library exhibition programmes at Colwyn Bay and Llandudno libraries and the Migrations Contemporary Dance project, together with workshops for schools and holiday activities for children.
The service can offer advice and guidance to individuals and community groups interested in arts projects, for example advice on funding sources. With the Sebra directory we can also now provide a list of local artists for specific projects. We hope this will not only be of use to community groups but will also provide some benefit to professional artists by promoting their work.
The Arts Service also provides grants. Our funding is limited and we currently only provide revenue grants to organisations, such as Oriel Mostyn and the Royal Cambrian Academy, who run a substantial arts venue or have a major presence in the County. However, now Arts Development grants are available for new arts projects or events - see Grants.
Bursting with ideas and creative energy? Planning a new arts project or event which will benefit the community of Conwy? If it can be completed before 31st March 2015 you could apply for an Arts Development grant of up to £1,000 to help with the costs.
