  • Release date: 3 March 2016
The Pioneer Area programme seeks to supports local authorities and Communities First clusters to find new opportunities for people to enjoy and take part in cultural activities.

It brings a range of cultural bodies to the table so they can have more of an impact on the lives of individuals and communities. As a pilot year, six Pioneer Areas have been established in Gwynedd, Cardiff/Merthyr, Newport, Swansea, Torfaen and Wrexham.

The programme was evaluated using a multi-method approach.
