The Arts & Business Cymru Awards 2019, now in its 25th year, aim to recognise “creativity and excellence” in partnerships between business and the arts.


Traveline Cymru won the Arts & Small business award for its work with Focus Wales and Hijinx. The project targeted young people who are “disengaged” with arts because of their financial circumstances, through volunteering opportunities.

Managing Director Jo Foxall said: “We are delighted with our win and hope that this will raise the profile of Traveline Cymru as an organisation which works on innovative, pioneering and inclusive projects.”

“We look forward to building other innovative partnerships and working on successful and exciting projects in the future.”

Traveline Cymru is a Welsh business employing 42 people, across a site in central Cardiff and a site in Penrhyndeudraeth, North Wales.

Companies of all sizes across Wales compete to win the “prestigious” awards which were held on Thursday 11th July at Wales Millennium Centre.

A&B Cymru CEO Rachel Jones said: “Once again our business partners demonstrate their belief in the importance and power of the arts and the range of nominations for this year’s Awards, was a true indication of how effective arts partnership are for businesses in Wales.

“A&B Cymru is proud to play a part in fostering so many innovative projects that help to create a richer society. In this flagship ceremony it is truly an honour to be able to celebrate the very best in cross sector collaboration.”
