CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The Women's Arts Association had its beginnings in 1984 in the Arts Discussion Group which evolved from South Glamorgan County Council Women's Committee. From 1986 onwards it organised an annual Women's Arts Festival. The Association was formally organised in 1992 when it was known as South Glamorgan Women's Arts Association (Permanent Waves). Its purpose, under its constitution set out in 1992, was to increase opportunities for women to enjoy and take part in artistic and cultural activities and to promote public awareness of women's work. In 1996, the Association became a registered charity. It later adopted the name Permanent Waves Women's Arts Association. It moved from offices in Ely to Bute Street, Cardiff, in 2004 when Permanent Waves was dropped from its name, becoming Women's Arts Association. As the result of cuts in funding in 2010 it was obliged to operate as a voluntary organisation without permanent employed staff.
