A world of music from England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
Gorwelion : Horizons is a partnership that was developed ahead of WOMEX 13, Cardiff to bring together England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to celebrate our wealth of music traditions and cultures within a world music market. Initially instigated by Cerdd Cymru : Music Wales, the hosts of WOMEX 13 Cardiff, Horizons lends its name to a variety of development and promotional activities aimed at raising the excellence and profile of home artists, and linking them to opportunities to develop international markets for their work. While WOMEX 13 was certainly a focus, it was just the beginning of the journey.
Gorwelion : Horizons members are Arts Council England, Arts Council Northern Ireland, Arts Council Ireland, Cerdd Cymru : Music Wales (incorporating Arts Council of Wales / Wales Arts international) Creative Scotland, Scottish Music Industries Association and Culture Ireland and the partnership is supported by British Council.
