The Arts Active Trust is a registered charity that supports people to enjoy the arts through education, community and audience engagement projects in Cardiff and the neighbouring regions. 


We offer access to arts; through the provision and development of opportunities for participation, arts education and arts in the community.

Our mission is:

  • To engage our local communities with initiatives and activities that invigorate the imagination and stimulate the soul
  • To encourage people, of all ages, to engage in and enjoy arts activities.
  • To take our inspiration from the diverse programmes of St David’s Hall, where we are based, and to use them as a catalyst for creative activity.

As a charitable organisation Arts Active Trust relies on support from the corporate sector, trusts and foundations and individuals in order to continue to develop its community engagement, working with schools, communities and disadvantaged groups throughout Wales.
