Chapter is proud to be the Film Hub Lead Organisation for Wales. 

Chapter is a dynamic cultural and community venue with two cinemas, theatres, exhibition spaces, a cafe/bar, over 60 resident companies in cultural workspaces and spaces for hire for community and cultural groups. Founded in 1971, Chapter has an international reputation for innovation and collaboration and offer an ever-changing programme of the best films, performance and exhibitions from Wales and from around the world. Chapter encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to engage with the arts and have become the flagship for the contemporary arts in Wales as one of the largest complexes of its kind in Europe. 

For over 40 years Chapter has been the heartbeat of creativity in Cardiff, as an ambitious, multi-artform venue that presents, produces and promotes international art, live performance and film alongside a dynamic social space. More than 800,000 visitors are welcomed to Chapter every year. 

Born in a period of great transformation and change and as one of the first arts centres in the UK, Chapter brought together different artforms under one roof, centred around an open, accessible space. 

Striving to change and develop, means taking risks and sometimes failing. It’s this spirit of curiosity that has fostered its transformation from a deserted school to a unique hub for art, ideas and innovation. This has allowed the team not just to embrace the change but to use it to move forward along adventurous paths – working with new artists in new ways, becoming more entrepreneurial, supporting independent creatives at a local, national and international level. But also being at the heart of the community – a community of artists, audiences and local people.

Chapter wouldn’t be able to do all this without the support of their funders and sponsors, their creative community and of course without you.
