Arts Connection is an inspirational community arts organisation working in North Powys and the border communities. Revenue funded by the Arts Council of Wales, they have provided high quality participatory arts projects in a wide range of artistic mediums for over 14 years. Their work with schools, children, youth, the learning disabled and the wider community offers a welcoming bi-lingual doorway into the arts.

They manage a diverse range of projects and work in effective alliance with community partners such as Powys Youth Service, Communities First ( Oldford Estate Welshpool), Clywd Alyn Housing Association and other arts organisations and community groups in order to generate increased involvement & participation with the arts.

Arts Connection created Ffilmic Film Festival, working to create access to independent and non-mainstream films as well as enabling access to informal film literacy education for all ages. The festivals aims to offer those living in rural areas the opportunity to access workshops with professionals working in the Film or TV industry and to offer access to non-mainstream films, to encourage film culture in its many and various forms from experimental / art house to foreign language films to essay films and more.
