Criw Celf West

Criw Celf West is an Arts Council of Wales funded project that aims to nurture and develop the creative talents of gifted young people. Students who successfully enroll on this project will take part in 5 master classes, each led by a professional artist or designer. There are also opportunities for them to visit other galleries and studios. Mission Gallery works in partnership with University of Wales Trinity Saint David, which allows your students safe access to high end equipment and facilities. As a celebration of the students hard work, we have an exhibition at the end of the project in our main exhibition space.



Getting Involved

Mission Gallery runs this project for young people in Swansea, Neath & Port Talbot, in the following age groups:
• Criw Celf Primary (school years 5-6)
• Criw Celf Secondary (school years 7-9)
• Portfolio (GCSE)
• Raising the Bar (AS/A Level and F/E).

There is a selection process, which will be announced later this year.
There is a £40 fee to take part in the project, payable in advance.


We are currently recruiting for our Portfolio and Raising the Bar age groups! See below for application packs.

Financial Support

This project is a great opportunity for any student who’s gifted in the arts. Whilst this project is heavily subsidised by the Arts Council of Wales, we fully understand that not everyone can afford the fee. We have a limited number of free spaces, please talk with Megan if you’d like to apply for one.
