Funding and Support

Welsh Government

With the right support, both homegrown and incoming productions will flourish over the coming years. Creative Wales provides this support through funding, skills and talent development, and investment in infrastructure.

Creative Wales supports both indigenous and incoming productions. We can provide bespoke funding packages, helping to maximise a production’s impact on supply chain, local economy, upskilling, talent development, industry apprenticeships and training.

We’re currently working on updating this production funding offer, and more details will be shared in due course. In the meantime if you’d like to get in touch to hear about latest developments on this or discuss a future production in Wales, you can contact us at creativewales@gov.wales  

Where businesses are seeking direct financial support from Creative Wales they will be required to commit to an Economic Contract aimed at stimulating growth, increasing productivity and making Wales fairer and more competitive. A key consideration for the Welsh Government through Creative Wales will be that individuals gain fair employment and fair terms and conditions.

Further details on funding mechanisms, as and when they're announced can be found on the Creative Wales website.
