Published

on

CWMNI THEATR ARAD GOCH in Aberystwyth is set to receive £25,000 as part of the Welsh Government’s funding of community schemes over the next two years.

Alun Davies, Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Public Services, has announced which organisations are set to benefit from £2 million of Welsh Government funding from the Community Facilities Programme (CFP).

It has been earmarked for 17 projects across Wales aimed at developing community facilities which bring people together.

CFP is a capital grant scheme which funds the development of community facilities; providing opportunities for local people to improve their day to day lives. Grants are available at two levels – up to £25,000 and up to £250,000. The scheme is open to community and voluntary sector organisations, including social enterprises. All applicants are expected to work with partners which can come from the public, private or the third sectors.

Arad Goch aims to create relevant theatre for young people, that inspires, motivates and is memorable. Their work draws on indigenous Welsh material and traditions as well as contemporary and challenging themes and styles.

By touring extensively in Welsh and English around Wales, to theatres, schools, halls and centres, they try to ensure that the widest possible audience, in all corners of the country, have the opportunity to see and enjoy contemporary theatre of the highest order. The funding will help Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch to improve its reception area, fit new windows and commission an arts installation.

Alun Davies said, “The purpose of this funding is to help create resilient communities, where people are directly engaged with local issues. I want our communities to help to deliver the vital local services their people need and I will to continue to empower them to be able to do this. Each of the projects announced today provide opportunities to deliver locally, while improving community cohesion and bringing people together.”

Since the CFP opened in 2015 it has funded 83 projects across Wales with grants totalling £17.7 million.
