Arts Council of Wales is encouraging applicants to apply for grants from the Sharing Together fund, to develop and strengthen existing networking opportunities.

Funding is specifically targeted at initiatives which focus on promoting Equality & Diversity, including (but not restricted to):

  • Engaging hard-to-reach audiences
  • Developing diverse audiences for the Arts
  • Increasing participation in the Arts by disengaged communities
  • Developing sustainable funding models to enable this activity.

Networks come in all shapes and sizes. Some are more formal than others; some large, others small. Networks may opt to meet on a regular basis, others as and when the members feel it necessary. Networks do not have to depend on face to face meetings – they can be created and run online.

We have funds available for small scale one off projects in 2019/20 and can provide up to £2,000 per project.

To apply for funding, you will need to complete an application form. For more information please go to

The next closing date for applications is 27 September 2019
