I am Arts Director to the Arts Council of Wales and a Director on the board for Cerdd Cymru:Music Wales.

As Arts Director for the Arts Council of Wales I am responsible for developing and promoting the arts in Wales and building on Arts Council of Wales' commitment to authority, leadership and excellence.

I have more than 25 years experience in managing, leading and creating successful arts organisations.

I am also one of the Director's of Cerdd Cymru : Music Wales, a partnership between Welsh Music Foundation, Wales Arts International and Arts Council of Wales.

We bring together the music industry and musicians in Wales to develop international opportunities that benefit Wales economically and culturally.

Cerdd Cymru : Music Wales was responsible for putting together the successful bid for Cardiff to host WOMEX in 2013 and managing we hope a very successful WOMEX for all concerned in Cardiff last year.

Now we want to push on and see new opportunities for the fantastic Music coming out of Wales currently. Come and find us in the Horizons area in the Trade Fair.
