Creating opportunities through culture programme

Cadw is one of the key partners supporting the Welsh Government’s Fusion: Creating opportunities through culture programme alongside Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales and Arts Council of Wales.

Culture and heritage can have a huge impact on people’s lives. The Fusion programme contributes to the goals outlined in the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act particularly the ‘a Wales of cohesive communities’ and ‘a Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language’ goals.

View Fusion web pages for an overview of the current programme and the recent achievements, delivered by the Fusion coordinators — supported by a variety of local and national partners.
