Grants to Support Anti-Racist Culture, Heritage and Sport Projects in Wales

Funding available to support projects that meet the Culture, Heritage and Sport goals of the Anti-racist Wales Plan.

Welsh Government has launched The Anti-racist Wales Culture, Heritage and Sport Fund to support organisations to deliver the Culture Heritage and Sport goals and actions in the Anti-racist Wales Action Plan (ARWAP) and Welsh Government’s Programme for Government commitments.

Welsh Government anticipate that project proposals will focus on the ARWAP goals about:

  • Celebrating Diversity
  • The Historical Narrative
  • Learning about our Cultural Diversity.

But applications delivering against any of the Culture Heritage and Sport ARWAP goals and actions will be eligible for consideration.

Eligible applicants should:

  • Be an organisation, or an individual working with relevant organisations based in Wales or whose activity is based in Wales.
  • Be active in the Culture: Arts, Museums, Archives, Libraries, Heritage or Sport sectors, with experience of either engagement or delivery in these sectors,

Grants of between £5,000 to £150,000 per annum/financial year from October 2022 to March 2025 will be considered.

The funding for 2022/23 is for revenue costs only. A limited amount of capital funding is available from April 2023-March 2025 only. Due to limited amount of capital funding available it is recommended that capital makes up no more than 10% of the proposed funding.

It is envisaged that there will be a further application window for funding in 2023 and potentially 2024, depending upon the funding available.

Completed application forms must be submitted by the deadline of 22 August 2022.
