Inquiry into Participation in the Arts in Wales

The Communities, Equality and Local Government Committee undertook an inquiry into Participation in the Arts. The Committee had heard concerns from a number of organisations that budget cuts in the arts sector might have been having a negative effect on participation in the arts among some groups of people. The Committee therefore established a Task and Finish Group to undertake a short inquiry on this issue.


The terms of reference for the inquiry were to:


  • assess the impact of budget cuts on participation in the arts in Wales, specifically whether certain groups of people have been affected more than others;
  • identify gaps in provision for participation in the arts, both demographically and geographically;
  • explore the role of the voluntary arts sector in arts participation and scope alternative funding sources;
  • evaluate the policy framework between the Welsh Government and the bodies that distribute arts funding; and
  • look at whether arts organisations in Wales are equipped to deliver the equality objectives of their funders.
