Tŷ Cerdd’s mission is to support artists, communities, audiences to create, perform and participate in the music of Wales.
And our vision: we envisage a Wales in which music-creators of all genres and backgrounds are enabled to make music and develop careers; in which a diversity of people and communities can engage in and enjoy Welsh music.
If you’re making music in Wales, it’s Welsh music!
We work with community groups across Wales, offering artistic expertise and promotional support, and helping them to connect with composers and audiences; Tapestri (a living archive of the people, languages & communities of Wales) represents some of this activity.
We deliver direct support for music-creators under the CoDI artist-development initiative.
We fund a range of music-making across Wales with Lottery funds that we distribute for Arts Council of Wales.
TŶ CERDD - MUSIC CENTRE WALES SEEKS NEW TRUSTEES
We want to recruit up to 3 new trustees to join our skilled, passionate Board.
The range of activity at Tŷ Cerdd is incredibly broad, and we want our Board to reflect that breadth – and, importantly, to reflect a modern, diverse Wales, which brings with it a range of lived experience, cultural backgrounds and musical genres.
We are particularly keen to receive applications from young people (under 30), from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people, disabled people, people who are LGBTQ+ and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds. However, we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and will consider applications on merit.
