What we Do

Wales Arts International supports the promotion and development of contemporary professional practice across all art-forms, by encouraging international dialogue through collaboration and partnership working.

Wales Arts International is a contact point for information and advice through our website, publications, networks and international projects. Our newsletter Canfas highlights news and opportunities in Wales and abroad alongside our programme of initiatives and projects.

We work with a wealth of international and UK based partners. We develop art-form promotion and project work in alliance with individual practitioners, arts organisations, cultural institutions and government bodies worldwide. We collaborate with arts organisations and individuals overseas to develop a series of residencies, seminars, workshops, study visits and selected showcases in order to cultivate strong cultural networks between Wales and the rest of the world.

We administer a fund for international opportunities through which Wales based art practitioners and organisations can be directly supported to research and realise projects with overseas partners.

Partnership working is integral to Wales Arts International to enable opportunities and to build cultural understanding. Working with local, national and international partners, we establish a meaningful dialogue which provides firm foundations on which to develop creative ideas.

Wales Arts International is a partnership between the Arts Council of Wales and the British Council.
