Arts & Business Cymru

A&B Cymru’s role is to promote, enable and develop mutually beneficial partnerships between business and the arts.

From offices in Cardiff and Llandudno, the Wales team works with a range of arts professionals, from individual practitioners to flagship organisations, and the private sector from micro businesses through to multi national corporations.

A&B Cymru’s work has proven value in the current economic climate of Wales. The impact it has can be felt on children, people in the workplace, communities large and small.

A&B Cymru knows that when business and the arts work together in truly mutual partnership, both become stronger with the results benefiting our society in far reaching and tangible ways.

Government Funding Portal brings together all the regional, local and national government funding schemes in one place – incredibly time-saving. It also includes independent grant administrators and European sources and keeps you updated on funding rounds coming up.

It gives a real advantage in securing funds from government sources. It has access to over £2.2 bilion in funding. The Funder's Menu enables you to see funding from Central Government, Independent Grant Administrators, European Sources and Regional Government.

The cost of a single user subscription for voluntary organisations is £225 + VAT. However, costs depend upon the type of organisation you are, and the number of licences you would like to purchase.
