8. Creativity and Culture

Last update: 27 January 2021

Creativity and culture are fostered in Welsh schools through the Curriculum Cymreig. This is a whole-school approach to promoting Welsh culture and heritage through the school curriculum, including through extra-curricular activities.

The National Endowment for Music, a joint initiative between the Cabinet Secretary for Education and the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, was announced in February 2017 to support young people to develop their talents in music. The Arts Council of Wales will be funded to set up the endowment fund which is expected to generate money to fund additional music activities for young people across the country.
