Supported by Arts Council of Wales, The Welsh Government, and The National Lottery
Creative Wales Ambassadors are selected following a nomination process. The nomination must reflect a Wales based organisation and a company or organisation out of Wales who are linked by a project initiated by an artist. The award is to the artist. However, the project that the artist undertakes must build creative links between Wales and the world. It is therefore the work of the artist that acts as ambassador for the creativity of contemporary Wales.
On Dec 04th ’14, Arts Council of Wales announced Chris as a Creative Wales Ambassador for 2014/15
