ACW seeks more Independent Members for the Mid & West Wales Regional Committee     

The Arts Council of Wales (ACW) is the national development and funding body for the arts in Wales, established in 1994 by Royal Charter with four key objectives: develop and improve the knowledge, understanding and practice of the arts; increase the accessibility of the arts to the public; advise and cooperate with other public bodies; work through the medium of Welsh and English. This includes distributing more than £35m of Welsh Assembly Government and National Lottery funding to the arts in Wales.

Partnership is crucial to ACW's work. The three Regional Committees in North, South and Mid & West Wales are the principal interface between local authorities, arts representatives and ACW. They bring together arts practioners and elected local authority
members four times per year in each region, to provide direct input into the formulation, implementation and monitoring of ACW's strategic and operational planning, which may include attending and reporting on some funded events. The role is unpaid but authorised travel expenses are
payable. ACW now seeks a number of individual Independent Members including arts practitioners to join the Mid & West Regional Committee for up to
three years.

• Have a sound knowledge of the arts infrastructure in the region and demonstrate an understanding of the major issues in the cultural sector.

• Be committed to help develop and champion high-quality artistic endeavours that range from local community arts projects to national touring companies, ensuring that the arts continue to make a central contribution to the economic and cultural life of Wales.

• Be able to contribute objectively todiscussions about regional and national arts issues.

• Combine the qualities of creativity, vision and passion with those of discretion, propriety and pragmatism.

• Be willing to have your name and biography included on published lists of Regional Committee

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable but not essential. The deadline for applications is Friday 8th April 2005. Interviews will be held w/c 18th April 2005. Meetings commence from 25th April 2005.
