The Elan Valley has been awarded a prestigious Fellowship from the Arts Council of Wales. Applications from creative practitioners working in any art form are invited to apply for the Elan Valley Creative Wales Fellowship in the Elan Valley, Mid Wales. The one-year long Fellowship is available from September 2021 - August 2022.

The Elan Valley Creative Wales Fellowships offer established creative practitioners, based in Wales, a chance to experiment and develop their practice, while giving them time away from usual commitments in a beautiful, inspiring setting. The Fellowship includes six months’ accommodation within a one-year period, and a £9,000 bursary.
