Mission Statement

Arts Alive Wales is an educational arts charity that uses the arts to engage, inspire and enhance the quality of life of individuals and communities. We work with professional artists to provide active and meaningful participation in compelling and high quality contemporary arts and culture, aiming to offer the highest quality of opportunity and experience to participants.   Our projects with schools and pupils support positive wellbeing as well as promoting creative, digital and literacy skills.

We are the regional provider of Criw Celf - a pan-Wales project for children and young people (11 to 19 years) who are More Able and Talented in the visual arts.  Our 'art camps' provide MAT pupils with a rich experience of masterclasses, studio and gallery visits and creative industries experience, including access to digital technologies, that support creative learning, boost portfolios and offers insight into the rich diversity and opportunities for a creative career.

Our creative writing / film-making programme Caban Sgriblio, funded by Children in Need, supports the mental health and wellbeing of vulnerable children.  The workshop programme boosts confidence, enables self-expression and helps children with communication, oracy and literacy.

Our Creative Network has over 100 professional artists, makers and writers.
