Dylan Thomas 100
2014 is the centenary of the birth of Dylan Thomas in Swansea. Thomas is one of Wales’s most important and revered writers. To celebrate this unique event, the Welsh Government, Arts Council of Wales and local authority partners are leading a celebration of Dylan Thomas life, his work and his legacy.
In the run up to 2014, and during the year itself, funding partners will be investing in a year long programme of activity. The programme of events – large and small, international and local – will highlight the artistic, cultural, educational and commercial opportunities that such a unique celebration can offer. Events will be based around four themes based on Dylan Thomas’ works.
- Between the Covers of Books (Education and Learning);
- To Wales in My Arms (Tourism);
- Sailed and Set Dazzling (International), and;
- High Hill and Green Fuse Events – which are intended to structure and inspire festival activity.
Applying for financial assistance
Given the popularity of Dylan Thomas we’re expecting to receive more proposals for funding than we’re able to support. This means that only the very best projects are likely to be funded.
Having a great idea or an exciting project is the essential first step, but you also need to submit a proposal that clearly and accurately describes what you want to do.
We want you to feel that you’ve been able to present your ideas and your proposal in as persuasive a way as possible. The funding information pack below outlines the funding process.
