Allwch chi fod yn Asiant er Newid?
 
Mae Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru am drawsnewid sut rydym ni’n ymgysylltu â ac yn datblygu cyfleoedd i bobl o gefndiroedd Du, Asiaidd ac Ethnig Amrywiol a phobl Fyddar ac anabl i fwynhau, cymryd rhan a gweithio yn y Celfyddydau.
 
Y Cyngor yw'r corff swyddogol sy'n datblygu ac ariannu celfyddydau Cymru. Rydym ni’n cynnig grantiau gyda’r  arian a gawn gan Lywodraeth Cymru, y Loteri Genedlaethol a ffynonellau cyhoeddus a phreifat eraill.
 
Ein “gweledigaeth” yw Cymru greadigol lle mae'r celfyddydau wrth wraidd ein bywyd a’n lles mewn gwlad sy’n lle cyffrous a bywiog i bobl fyw a gweithio ynddi. Rydym ni am gydnabod hawl diwylliannol a chreadigol pob unigolyn a chymuned ledled Cymru.
 
Mae’r pandemig wedi newid ein byd. Felly rhaid i’r celfyddydau – a’r Cyngor – newid. Ers amser maith gwrthodir cyfleoedd i bobl ac artistiaid Duon, Asiaidd, ethnig amrywiol, Byddar ac anabl greu celfyddyd neu weithio yn y maes ar eu telerau eu hunain. Mae ystadegau’n profi mai prin yw amrywiaeth ar draws sector y celfyddydau.
 
Rydym ni am drawsnewid a gwella amrywiaeth ein bwrdd llywodraethu (y Cyngor) a'n staff. Rydym ni hefyd am greu newid yn y sefydliadau rydym ni’n eu hariannu.
 
Os gallwch chi ein helpu i greu’r newid, hoffem ni glywed gennych.
 
Can you be an Agent for Change?
 
The Arts Council of Wales wishes to transform how we engage with and develop opportunities for people from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds and Deaf and disabled people to enjoy, take part and work in the Arts.
 
Arts Council of Wales is the official public body that develops and funds the arts in Wales. We offer grants with money that we receive from the Welsh Government, the National Lottery and other sources of public and private support.
 
Our “vision” is of a creative Wales where the arts are central to the life and well-being of the nation, making our country an exciting and vibrant place to live, work and visit. This means recognising the cultural entitlement and creative needs of all individuals and communities across Wales.
 
The world looks very different today than it did before COVID-19. We know that change is needed across the arts in Wales – including at the Arts Council of Wales. For too long, Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people along with Deaf and disabled people and artists have been denied opportunities to create and present their own art or to work in the arts in Wales on their own terms. Funding statistics tell their own story – and it’s not a good one –diversity across the arts sector as a whole is falling short.
 
At the Arts Council, we want to improve the diversity of and transform our Council (our board of governance) and staff. We also want to foster and drive change in the organisations we fund.
 
If you feel you can be the one to help us drive these changes, we’d like to hear from you.
