It might not be something that you’ll always think about, or even consciously notice, but art is central to our everyday quality of life and the wellbeing of our nation. A dynamic, prosperous, creative Wales is vital for all our futures. The arts make Wales a better place.

We want to work with you to improve the wellbeing and life of our nation through the arts. By investing in the arts you can achieve all seven goals of the Well-being of Future Generations Act. Together we can make a positive difference to the future generations of Wales.

As a partner in the delivery of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 we take this responsibility seriously and have already had productive contact with many Public Service Boards across Wales.

Our progress so far

From the day-to-day management and running of our offices to policy development and our entire corporate infrastructure, planning, training and financial strategies, we are committed to placing the sustainable development principle at the heart of what we do.

The monitoring of the Arts Council of Wales’ responsibilities is something that Council has taken very seriously. It has set the bar high and is very keen - not only to meet our obligations fully - but to champion the principles underpinning the legislation. We believe that they are important in creating a fairer, more compassionate and creative world. The day to day responsibility for ensuring that we are making progress with this work has been delegated to a Well-being of Future Generations Monitoring Group.
