This web gallery showcases some of the work delivered by the Arts, Culture and Events section which sits within the Libraries Arts and Culture service as part of the Directorate of Organisational Change - IB.

The Arts, Culture and Events team leads, advises and coordinates various arts and culture projects and events for schools and the wider community. Projects include music, visual art, dance and drama residencies in schools, large scale cultural events such as Helfa Gelf artist studios trail and community festivals. The section also coordinates the commissioning and installation of permanent public artworks and cultural projects such as the annual Japanese Youth Exchange and the Youth Speaks public speaking competition.

Night Out

Night Out offers community groups, who have access to a suitable venue (e.g. Community Centre/Village Hall/School etc.), the opportunity to host live arts performances including plays, dance shows, jazz folk and classical music concerts, poetry, story telling and many other art forms.

Organised by the Community Touring Unit of the Arts Council of Wales in partnership with the County Council the scheme eliminates or minimises the financial risk and allows for performances to be staged in virtually any venue regardless of size and facilities such as stage, sound or special lighting.

It could even help you raise up to £100 or even more towards your funds.

Night Out may seem too good to be true, but there are no catches.
