Wales Millennium Centre

To be a place for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy and participate in the arts.


The Centre works on numerous Community Engagement initiatives that celebrate and share culture including Black History Month, Refugee Week, Diwali and Chinese New Year.

Tiger Bay Tales

The project involves collecting the oral histories / stories from both existing and ex residents of Butetown/Tiger Bay. All the stories will be held on an interactive website as well as ‘listening pods’ in spaces across the City. A short-list of stories will be selected with an interactive blue plaque trail created throughout Butetown to share the vibrant history of the locale.

The project is due to culminate in Spring 2016 and has been supported by Heritage Lottery Fund. There are likely to be future developments in bringing the stories to life through various art forms. Project collaborators include People’s Collection.


The Centre regularly hosts exhibitions / installations of various scales and exhibition both inside and outside the Centre could be possible.

They host free weekly and holiday family activity and therefore could support by theming & linking the activity to this project, offering free educational family activity.

Public spaces could also be made available for celebration / networking events.

They also have a function room that supports start-up companies (creative or otherwise) by offering free meeting/rehearsal space, subject to availability this room and other Centre function rooms could be made available to support artists meeting / rehearsing.

Further strategy work is currently taking place, other collaborative projects are also possible.

Some support for the application could be offered via their Development Department.
