Chapter is an ambitious, multi-artform cultural space based in Cardiff, Wales that presents and produces international art, performance and film alongside a dynamic social space.
For over 40 years Chapter has been the heartbeat of creativity in Cardiff. We’re an ambitious, multi-artform venue that presents, produces and promotes international art, live performance and film alongside a dynamic social space.
We welcome over 800,000 visitors every year.
We were born in a period of great transformation and change and as one of the first arts centres in the UK we brought together different artforms under one roof, centred around an open, accessible space.
We are an organisation that celebrates difference, that embraces the collision of contemporary and community, of art with audience, of the challenging and new with the open and the accessible.
We have never been afraid to change and develop, take risks and sometimes fail. It’s this spirit of curiosity that has fostered our transformation from a deserted school to a unique hub for art, ideas and innovation.
It has allowed us 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 our community – a community of artists, audiences and local people.
