Gwanwyn operates a Community Grant Scheme to assist organisations that wish to participate in the festival.

We are keen to include as many different kinds of cultural and community organisations as possible and participating organisations have ranged from theatre venues and museums to care homes and community centres.

Organisers contribute anything you can think of – painting, photography, theatre, dance, creative writing, film, storytelling, workshops, performances, exhibitions, networking events, discussions and much more.

Our application process is now open. Please download our Information Pack and Application Form for more information. Deadline for applications Friday 8 December 2017.  Successful recipients will be notified in January 2018 to deliver their event or series of events during the festival in May. Grants of up to £500 are available.

Gwanwyn also supports cultural or community organisations looking to improve their arts and creative offer for older people throughout the year and is interested to speak to organisations (both professional and voluntary) who are interested in exploring creative ageing and celebrating creativity in older age.

Please get in touch to find out ways in which Gwanwyn can help.
