The Arts Council of Wales is the country’s funding and development organisation for the arts. It is an independent charity, established by Royal Charter in 1994 and its members are appointed by the Welsh Government’s Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism.
Its principle sponsor is the Welsh Government and it also distributes funding from the National Lottery, raising additional money from a variety of public and private sector sources.
The Arts Council of Wales has supported the Relics project through an initial Research & Development grant and more recently through a large production grant for individuals.
Cadw is the Welsh Government’s historic environment service working for an accessible and well-protected historic environment for Wales. Its three main aims are to conserve Wales’s heritage, to help people understand and care about their history and to sustain the distinctive character of Wales.

Cadw have been providing invaluable guidance and support throughout the conception & delivery of the Relics project. Special thanks should be extended to Dr Ffion Reynolds for her helpful support throughout the project and for all the passionate and dedicated individual site staff.
