📢 Important Update: Funding Announcement from the Arts Council of Wales
Dear Trac Cymru Community,
We hope this message finds you all in good spirits. Today, we received news from the Arts Council of Wales regarding our funding application, and we’d like to share it with you.
Sadly we regret to announce that Trac Cymru will no longer be one of the organisations that is core funded annually by the ACW from 2024 onwards following their Investment Review. We’re very disappointed to not be included and in light of this decision we’ll be taking some time to reflect on the future work of the company and our next steps.
We want to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the incredible projects and organisations who did receive funding. Your commitment to the arts and culture in Wales is inspiring, and we look forward to witnessing the positive impact your endeavours will have on our creative communities. To other organisations who were not successful, we send a huge wave of support and please know that our hearts go out to you.
Our commitment to promoting and preserving Welsh folk traditions remains unwavering. This news will not deter us from our mission to put Wales’ traditional arts at the heart of contemporary Welsh life, and to achieve a flourishing culture within Wales with its roots in the folk tradition. We will continue to celebrate and nurture the rich tapestry of Welsh heritage through traditional music, dance, and storytelling.
We are here to listen, learn, and collaborate. If you’d like to explore ways to work together or if you have suggestions for how we can continue to serve our community better, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Your ideas and support are invaluable.
This is not the end of our journey. Trac Cymru is committed to evolving and finding innovative ways to champion the vibrant cultural traditions of Wales.
Thank you for your continued support.
