Tell CMW Your Story

Have you ever been involved with a CMW project? Have you been a participant, tutor, partner or part of Complete Control Music or Ciwdod? Perhaps you were there in the beginning, when CMW was but a twinkle in the collective minds of Cardiff’s community musicians in 1991. We want to hear from you.

As you may be aware 2017 marks the 25th year of CMW’s continuing activity, and we’ve decided to wax nostalgic about each one of those amazing years. But we need your help to remember. Have you got a favourite memory of CMW? Has CMW helped you with your career path or professional development? Maybe you took part in a project and would like to submit yourself as a case study? Or maybe you were part of one of the bands involved with Complete Control Music or Ciwdod.

Whatever your involvement, every memory matters to us and we would like to hear about it.

If you’d like to share your experiences or memories with CMW you can email admin@communitymusicwales.org.uk or phone us on 02920 838060 for a chat.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Garfield Weston Announcement

Community Music Wales (CMW) are happy to announce that they have been successful in their application to Garfield Weston Foundation for one year of core funding of £30,000. This will enable the development and implementation of three projects that will have a large impact on deprived communities across the whole of Wales.


CMW have identified three key areas they would like to focus on and use the opportunity to monitor the impact this work has on individuals and communities:
  • Refugee and Asylum Seekers.
  • Young people who are NEET.
  • People suffering from mental health issues.


With cuts to the arts and creative industries, it has become even more vital to demonstrate the long and short term impact this type of intervention can have, particularly on the well-being of our communities. CMW will use this grant to gather vital data and develop case studies and impact reports, supporting the work of the Arts Council of Wales to ensure the future of creative intervention for the most vulnerable in society.

We are hugely grateful to Garfield Weston Foundation and the support they have shown us and look forward to working with them in the future.
