On Friday morning Hamish and I met Chris Warner from the Regeneration Directorate in the Department for Housing, Regeneration and Heritage at the Welsh Government offices in Cardiff. Chris is the Head of Regeneration Policy for the Welsh Government. Now that regeneration is part of the same ministerial portfolio as culture the Minister, Huw Lewis, is keen to look at developing better links between the arts and regeneration. The Minister has recently launched a review of the Government’s approaches to regeneration and Chris was keen to talk to us about the role that voluntary arts groups might be able to play in relation to regeneration. We discussed a number of possible approaches and agreed to try to develop some pilot activity in certain parts of Wales.
