A statement from Paul Kaynes, NDCWales Chief Executive and Lee Johnston, NDCWales Associate Director
"We wholeheartedly welcome the announcement of vital funding for arts and culture in the UK, and it’s good news there is a specific allocation for Wales. The arts sector in Wales is interdependent – with a network of companies, venues and freelance artists all critical to creating a vibrant and ambitious sector with powerful reach and impact. This funding will ensure creativity and innovation continue to thrive. It can also enable change so that the arts in Wales reflects the lives and aspirations of everyone, including those whose voices have not traditionally been heard. We look forward to hearing the details as to how the funding will support this network of individuals and organisations to ensure that Wales’ cultural sector can thrive during and post- Covid-19."
