Administrative / Biographical History

Founded in 1968, the aims of the Association were to "promote interest in the Colwyn Bay & District, and to organise and support Art Festivals, to establish co-operation between societies, groups and support the establishment of an Arts Centre in Colwyn Bay". At one time very successful, with a membership of over 300, numbers eventually dwindled and in 1996 the decision was made to wind up the Association and to share out remaining funds amongst other arts-based associations.
