A&B Cymru Celebration of the Arts Shortlist Revealed!
A&B Cymru Celebration of the Arts
Sponsored by Wales & West Utilities
Recognising Outstanding Creativity & Resilience
Fifteen arts organisations are in the running to win prestigious cash prizes at A&B Cymru’s forthcoming Celebration of the Arts, sponsored by Wales & West Utilities.
Staged at the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff on Thursday 2 December, the event will shine a spotlight on the flexibility and innovation displayed by the creative sector during the pandemic. Despite restrictions, many organisations quickly adapted their work in order to bring joy and inspiration to people and communities during the most difficult of times.
The diverse shortlist encompasses organisations of all sizes and art forms across Wales.
During the Celebration, six of them will receive a £1,000 cash prize recognising their exceptional work. These have been made possible by the event’s Prize Partners – Admiral, Cardiff & Vale Health Charity, Cartrefi Conwy, Penderyn Distillery, Pendine Park Care Organisation, the Waterloo Foundation and University of Wales Trinity Saint David. One organisation will be awarded a top prize of £2,500, thanks to generous support from the Hodge Foundation.
An individual from business will also be recognised as the Adviser of the Year for the crucial expertise and advice which helped to ensure their arts partner’s survival.
The evening will also provide an opportunity to acknowledge the vital support that has come from businesses, individuals and trusts during the past 18 months.
The full shortlist is available at http://www.abcelebration.cymru/shortlist/
The Celebration of the Arts will be live-streamed to a global audience, free of charge, thanks to the staunch and hugely valuable support of the Event Partners. An audience of 200 guests will also be present at the theatre and tickets will be on sale from 1 November at a cost of £25 + VAT for A&B Cymru Members and £35 + VAT for non-Members.
