On Monday I was in Cardiff where Aled and I met Peter Owen and Allyn Davies from the Culture, Sport & Media Division at the Housing, Regeneration & Heritage Department of the Welsh Government. We talked about the future of the Arts Strategy Board, our Grassroots Arts research project, changes to the Communities First programme and the need to measure levels of cultural engagement in Wales. Peter and Allyn assured us that the Minister, Huw Lewis, is very much an advocate of community participation in the arts, particularly in relation to addressing disadvantage. It was a very positive and encouraging meeting and it was good to reconnect with senior civil servants in the Welsh Government.
