Arts Council of Wales has identified a new 'portfolio' of revenue organisations (RFOs) that will be at the heart of the Arts Council's future strategy to develop the arts in Wales.
The outcome of the Investment Review was published in the document Renewal and Transformation. As part of this we have reviewed how we support public art in Wales. We will be bringing forward a new framework for developing art in the public realm.
Public Art Development - Consultation paper
Public Art Development - Summary of the consultation and our response
In future we will:
- re-focus the artists residency programme (currently operated as the Stwidio Safle programme) – we’ll take this back ‘in house’ and deliver it over the period 2011-14 through arrangements with our galleries and venues network
- advocate and explain the value of public art – we’ll work with local authorities promoting and advocating a wide range of activity. The Arts Council has well-established structures for liaison and joint-planning with local authorities and with the Welsh Government. We’ll also include a new portal on our website relaying information and good practice
- ‘broker’ new opportunities – we’ll ensure that potential new projects are matched with the growing body of knowledgeable freelancers who are now based in Wales
- encourage creative collaboration across the areas of Visual and Applied Art, Architecture, Design and the Environment
