Winners of the Creative & Cultural Skills Awards announced!
These annual awards showcase the individuals and organisations that have shown an outstanding commitment to skill development and learning in the creative industries. The 2019 winners were announced on Monday 1 April at a special ceremony in the National Museum Cardiff.
Over 200 guests gathered in the National Museum Cardiff to celebrate the people and organisations that are working to develop a strong, skilled cultural sector. This year’s awards drew the highest number of nominations in the history of the event.
The shortlist featured nominees from across the UK, specialising in dance, theatre, heritage, music, community arts and more.
Simon Dancey, CEO of Creative & Cultural Skills said “The calibre of nominees we had in this year’s awards was truly exceptional. As a sector we’re not very good at celebrating the work we do, particularly the work which goes on behind the scenes.
“These awards are designed as a chance for us to take time out of our usual day-to-day activities and reflect on our successes.”
