Cymru yn Fenis Wales in Venice is a partnership between Arts Council of Wales (the Commissioner) and the organisation/s selected to deliver the presentation.

The rationale for presenting in Venice and what we seek to achieve is reflected in the partnerships aims:

  • Present the most exciting and creative artists associated with Wales.
  • Focus international and national attention on the diverse range of critically valued work in, from and to do with Wales.
  • Create international experiences and connections for galleries, curators and artists that will develop the visuals arts in Wales.
  • Celebrate Wales in the World as dynamic, culturally engaged and forward-looking.

The presence at the Venice Biennale is underpinned by Arts Council of Wales with a core budget of £400,000 across two years to develop the project.
