Guidance & advocacy

Our Advisory group is here to support us by offering valuable input into our work and future strategies. It also acts as an advocate for Aberystwyth Arts Centre across Wales.

The group meets three times a year. Membership is open to anyone interested in the arts and what we do, regardless of their background or location. We welcome individuals from all disciplines and practices, whether they’re based in mid-Wales, across the country, or further afield.

We’re committed to making sure our Advisory Group represents a diverse range of people, including those of different genders, ages, abilities, races, and sexual orientations, to ensure a wide range of perspectives are represented.
