One of the aims of Culture Colony is to address this problem for the arts and fill the gap that traditional television broadcasters and the print media are, for a number of reasons, unwilling or unable to supply. Culture Colony - Y Wladfa Newydd will provide stimulating, creative content for a world wide audience. This 'channel' on the internet will open the way for more involvement from an arts audience and from arts practitioners through a series of innovative projects aimed at interactivity, involvement and education, enabling Culture Colony - Y Wladfa Newydd to grow and evolve with its membership.
Culture Colony - Y Wladfa Newydd is our cultural front line populated by anyone with an interest in our cultural development and concerned about our creative expression.
