What We Do

Established in April 2008, Head4Arts is a community arts organisation which operates in the eastern heads of the valleys area covering the county boroughs of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil and Torfaen.

Head4Arts is funded by the Welsh Government through the Arts Council of Wales and is supported by a partnership of the four local authorities involved.

We seek to provide high-quality, inspirational arts experiences that are relevant to local communities. Some of our work is delivered on a time-limited project basis, whereas other activities run throughout the year. To find out how you can get involved in our activities please click here.

Head4Arts commissions a wide range of practitioners working in all art forms to deliver a diverse programme of work, ranging from running drop-in workshops at festivals to staging large-scale regional performances at high-profile events.    For details of projects please click here

We believe in the transformational quality of the arts and their ability to simulate positive change in local communities.  We work with partners from a range of different sectors, such as community development, youth services, criminal justice and the health sector, using the arts to achieve a variety of outcomes.  For details of our work with partners please click here.
