We are internal agency sitting within the Department for Culture, Sport and Tourism in Welsh Government.
We are committed to nurturing more inclusive, sustainable and prosperous creative industries for Wales. To do that, we want to be transparent with our vision. When we launched, we developed a set of priorities to help guide us – you can read those in our priorities document.
To make sure we answer the needs of the creative industries, we are also working on action plans for screen, music, games, CreaTech and animation. When finished, these will be published here for you to read.
Media and broadcasting
As well as supporting our creative industries, we're also responsible for broadcasting and media policy in Wales. As powers for broadcasting and media sit with UK Government, our role is to support a broadcasting media framework that works for our country. This means working closely with other governments across the UK to make sure our creative industries are always represented, heard and considered.
Alongside this, we also focus on building relationships with key partners, such as Ofcom, and lead on the broadcasting and media commitments in the Welsh Government's Co-operation Agreement with Plaid Cymru. Some other key areas of work include:
Wales Public Interest Journalism Group
We manage the Wales Public Interest Journalism Group, which looks at what is needed for a thriving, diverse and sustainable journalism sector in Wales.
Public Service Broadcasters' (PSBs) Memorandums of Understandings (MOUs)
We constantly build on our positive relationship with public service broadcasters in Wales and have agreed memorandums of understandings with the BBC and S4C. These set out our joint priorities and commitment to support and grow the broadcasting sector in Wales.
