The Welsh language and the arts: a new strategy

Cygnor Celfyddydau Cymru - Arts Council of Wales,
31 January 2022, Wales

The announcement follows our mapping exercise on the use of Welsh in the arts and the appointment of Einir Siôn to our new post of Welsh Language Enabler. We will draw up this new strategy in collaboration with the arts and Welsh language sectors encouraging discussions that will lead to far-reaching results.

Einir Siôn, Welsh Language Enabler, will hold a series of discussions so that individuals and organizations can contribute to the strategy.

Einir said:

"It is key that this strategy is formed in an open and participatory way. We will hold a series of short discussions focusing on actions we can take in the arts. This will not be a platform to air complaints but an opportunity to discuss positive ways of creating change."

The first public session will take place via Zoom 4-5pm on Wednesday, 9 February 2022. The sessions will be held every other week, through the medium of Welsh with simultaneous translation into English available.
