Arts Council of Wales opportunities

Arts Council of Wales seeks Associates

The Welsh Arts Council is inviting Expressions of Interest from anyone who would like to be considered for future paid opportunities as an Associate.

Associates will provide insight and guidance across a range of Arts Council of Wales priorities including the organisation’s strategic planning, specific projects and programmes, the design of grant funding opportunities, assessments of grant applications and application processes. Each opportunity will be specific to the Associate.

The Arts Council is seeking ‘a broad range of input from people with lived experience of different communities in Wales and/or specific arts expertise in any of our key supported artforms, or indeed, in hybrid and emerging artforms’.

According to the organisation’s website, ‘Ultimately, we want to ensure that the diversity of communities across Wales is fully reflected in the design and assessment of the funding we distribute on behalf of both Welsh Government, the National Lottery and our own Arts Council Wales funding and initiatives.

‘We attach importance to our commitment to work with individuals and groups across all of the protected characteristics, including ethnically and culturally diverse people, D/deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent people, LGBTQ+ people, Welsh speakers and learners. We would welcome applications from these individuals’.

How to apply

Applications are open now and close at midday on 22 September 2021.

  • Submit your Expression of Interest (EOI) online, as a written document or a short video outlining how your knowledge, skills and experience can make a difference.
  • If your EOI is accepted, the Arts Council will be in touch about potential Associate opportunities that relate to your knowledge, skills and experience. At this stage we may need additional information from you. Your EOI being accepted does not guarantee work as an Associate, but it does mean that you’ll be in a pool of people that we’ll be seeking to match work with for 12 months.
