Mwldan is a vibrant presenting and producing arts centre situated in Cardigan, in the heart of the beautiful West Wales countryside.
With a dedication to innovation, vision and excellence, Mwldan has been described by The Arts Council of Wales as ‘exemplary’ and a ‘model of best practice and excellence’ for its touring and production work. Mwldan was recently given a Beacon Company Award for 2008 and 2009 from The Arts Council of Wales, one of only 22 arts organisations in Wales to receive this special recognition.
Mwldan has an important role in contributing to the local economic, social and cultural regeneration of Cardigan and the surrounding area. Mwldan is a not-for-profit organisation that combines economic activity with a social and ethical purpose. At Mwldan’s heart is the belief that the arts can deliver life-changing and life-enhancing experiences that have the power to change perceptions and increase tolerance, breaking down cultural divides and allowing greater understanding – as relevant for the community we live in as it is for the planet we live on. This vision is at the core of Mwldan and all its activities.
Specialising in touring production and logistics, financial and administrative tour management, and with a reputation for the quality and effectiveness of its marketing, Mwldan has provided many artists with the opportunity to extensively tour the fantastic network of venues, theatres and arts centres available within Wales. Over the past five years Mwldan has co-produced more than 40 touring projects, specializing in world music, traditional music and drama. We have brought many outstanding international acts and artists from over the world to tour Wales, and produced projects within Wales that are available for touring worldwide.
To date over 100,000 people have seen work produced and toured by Mwldan in the past five years alone, making us one of Wales’ most prolific producing venues.
