Icon Supports Arts Council of Wales Lottery Strategy

Icon has responded to the Arts Council of Wales Lottery Strategy 2019-2024 consultation, commending the strategy’s ambition for all people in Wales to enjoy and take part in the arts.

Icon particularly supported objectives to improve diversity, support international work and develop leadership within the arts and cultural sectors.

Our response welcomed the statement that artists need a “critical mass of activity to support their work,” and pointed to conservation as a key enabler of the arts. Conservator-restorers ensure the work of past and current artists survives for the education and enjoyment of all generations, protecting the reference material that will inspire future generations of artists and cultural professionals of all specialisms.

Icon called on the Arts Council of Wales to support the cultural heritage conservation sector so that it can continue to contribute to a prosperous and sustainable environment for the arts.

Icon’s response was written with the Policy Advisory Panel.
