Artes Mundi brings extraordinary international contemporary visual art to Wales, creating landmark events that enrich our cultural and educational life and inspire new audiences. In 2014 Artes Mundi attracted over 115,000 visitors to exhibitions at National Museum Cardiff, Chapter, Ffotogallery and MOSTYN in Llandudno.
Artes Mundi 6 was the most successful yet. It received unprecedented press coverage and generated publicity worth £2.5 million. Over 7,000 people, including 4,000 children, came to events and activities led by our team of LiveGuides. 3,500 more engaged with our pop-up projects that brought contemporary art into shopping centres and other public spaces.
Artes Mundi is publicly funded by Arts Council of Wales and Cardiff City Council, but we still need to raise almost £2 for every £1 we receive from the public purse. We have a great track record of building partnerships with trusts, foundations and the private sector, but every year it gets more difficult to fund this amazing project.
If you share our belief that great contemporary art can transform lives, then please consider supporting our work.
We’re always incredibly touched by people who would just like to contribute to Artes Mundi. Your donations make a huge difference. They enable us to fund another amazing exhibition and to offer workshops and events that will introduce thousands of Welsh children to contemporary art.
