Wales has long been home to many culturally and ethnically diverse communities that have continued to influence and shape Welsh art and music. Historically, Welsh artists of colour have faced prejudice and discrimination that has impeded them reaching mainstream recognition. Based in Cardiff Bay, one of Wales’ most culturally rich and diverse areas, Tŷ Cerdd is committed to bringing the spotlight Welsh artists of colour from across the nation, and empowering them through all stages of their career.


Under the umbrella of Music and Race in Wales Tŷ Cerdd is driving forward a strategy to ensure that artists of colour are represented, included and supported across our programme.
