We are about helping the Pontardawe Arts Centre thrive into the future. It is a key community asset, important to the well-being of people of the area and beyond. It does a lot more than just traditional “arts”, with many classes supporting local community groups.

Put simply, we are a formal charity set up to support your Arts centre. This can be though promoting its use, lobbying, fund raising, generating ideas for the local management team etc. The ideas need wider input from users and community groups – you.

A charity, we were formed at a meeting in January 2018 where over 300 people attended our launch meeting.  Since then we’ve run 6 successful events (very popular). Using the money raised and new sponsorship, we’ve helped purchase a new sound desk for the studio, fencing for use in street events, cleaning equipment, advertising boards and more.  We’re providing match funding in grant applications ).  It’s also allowing us to build up reserves in anticipation/hope of supporting the planned new investment.  An active Friends Group is a significant community voice to be listened to.
