The Gwynedd Community Arts Unit delivers a series of annual initiatives that support people to access, enjoy and experience the arts, for the benefit of individuals, society, the economy and community.
Each year the Community Arts Unit runs a varied programme of activities and projects across Gwynedd. From workshops to exhibitions, courses and grants, festivals and creative projects, we aim to make the arts accessible to all.
Grants are available to support arts activity.. We can also support professional performances in the community through the Night Out and Mini Night Out schemes, in partnership with the Arts Council of Wales.
