Following the Referendum held in June 2016, the UK Government began the process of withdrawal from the European Union (EU). This is due to happen on 29 March 2019. This is then expected to be followed by a ‘transition period’ to 31 December 2020 during which new political, financial and regulatory arrangements for the UK’s relationship with the EU will be agreed.

The UK’s departure from the EU will have significant implications for Welsh public bodies and the organisations and services that they support, as well as freelance and small companies working in the cultural sector. Many issues will be shared more widely across the cultural and heritage sector. But there are some that are specific  to the arts and creative industries.

The Arts Council of Wales remains firmly committed to international working in the arts. We will continue to champion the needs of the sector in any new European relationship, and we work in partnership with our sister organisations in the rest  of the UK to promote a coherent view of the issues affecting the sector.
