The purpose of What Next?

Broad aim: to find new ways of engaging with our audience and visitors: the ever-expanding millions who value and take part in the cultural work that happens day-in, day-out up and down this country.

Guiding star: to encourage the people of this country, as individuals and as communities, to see connections between the many different ways art and culture affect and enhance our lives; to urge everyone to register their endorsement of – and pleasure in – their art and culture, especially where these are under threat.

Beth Nesaf? – beth yw’r nod?

Nod bras: dod o hyd i ffyrdd newydd o ymgysylltu â’n cynulleidfa a’n hymwelwyr: y miliynau gynyddol sy’n gwerthfawrogi diwylliant ac yn cymryd rhan ynddo bob dydd ledled y wlad.

Seren arweiniol: annog ein pobl, yn unigolion a chymunedau, i weld cysylltiadau rhwng y llu o wahanol ffyrdd y mae celfyddyd a diwylliant yn effeithio ar ein bywyd a’i wella; annog pawb i gofrestru eu cymeradwyaeth o gelfyddyd a diwylliant, a’u pleser ynddynt, yn enwedig lle y maent dan fygythiad.
