Broad aim: to find new ways of engaging with our audience and visitors: the ever-expanding millions who value and take part in the cultural work that happens day-in, day-out up and down this country.

Guiding star: to encourage the people of this country, as individuals and as communities, to see connections between the many different ways art and culture affect and enhance our lives; to urge everyone to register their endorsement of – and pleasure in – their art and culture, especially where these are under threat.

Full text and list of signatories for European Capital of Culture/ South Wales Echo article

We believe that Cardiff is ready to bid to be European Capital of Culture in 2023, when the UK next hosts this prestigious accolade. The capital region of Wales, with its unique cultural life, can represent the best of the UK to the world.

When Liverpool was UK Capital of Culture in 2008, it brought in £75.8m to the economy, seeing an additional 9.7 million visitors over the year. Cardiff is more than capable of making the most of this exceptional opportunity to show off our culture on a global stage for the benefit of Wales, the nation and its people.

Over the last fifteen years, Cardiff, Newport and the surrounding valleys have changed beyond all recognition. We have a wonderful arts and cultural landscape in the city region, especially given the addition of National Theatre Wales, Wales Millennium Centre, Artes Mundi, Sŵn festival, BBC’s Roath Lock drama village and Hoddinot Hall, Newport’s Riverfront venue, Literature Wales, Diffusion: Cardiff International Festival of Photography, RWCMD’s new facilities, and much more. Plus the city has successfully hosted world music expo, WOMEX, in 2013. And in 2018, Cardiff will welcome the Eisteddfod to the city. Cardiff city region benefits from a culture of collaboration across its arts infrastructure that could maximise the benefit of such additional European investment. Taking pride of place as Capital of Culture will not only bring in the visitors but involve all our people in making and enjoying all kinds of creativity.

The capital region of Wales is booming. The Metro is a grand infrastructural project that will join up the 10 city region authorities that comprise 48% of the population of Wales; arts, culture and shared heritage are the things which bring us together.

We want to work with the Cardiff Capital Region Board, the City Deal local authorities and partners, and Welsh Government to make this bid a reality.
