Swansea Council’s Glynn Vivian Art Gallery plays a vital role in local society and as part of the creative ecosystem across Wales. Through exhibitions, collaborative projects, social engagement, learning, outreach and education we work with local audiences and communities.


Our programmes focus on excellence, equality, health and wellbeing, supporting artists and the most vulnerable in our society. We support local artists through exhibitions, awards, acquisitions and employment, as well as bringing some of the world’s leading artists to Wales. We present major exhibitions and new commissions, working in partnership with many local, national and international organisations. Our collection of artworks and ceramics belongs to the people of Swansea and forms an important part of the city’s cultural memory. Glynn Vivian Art Gallery is a Arts Council of Wales Arts Portfolio organisation and a part of Plus Tate and Visual Arts Group Wales.
