Mission:
To raise public awareness of Welsh heritage in North America, to celebrate Welsh-American culture and history; to preserve its works and to foster and encourage art and creativity in the Welsh tradition.
Results:
We hold the West Coast Eisteddfod, a Welsh-Americans arts and culture festival. In our first year, the festival was in Portland, Oregon and brought Welsh artists, writers and poets to Portland. In our second year, we held both an online eisteddfod and a live event in Portland, Oregon which featured poetry and storytelling competitions and brought Welsh and Welsh-American authors to the Wordstock Festival in Portland and provided authors to speak at local colleges. in 2011 our event will bring Welsh and Welsh-American writers and artists to Los Angeles, California. In 2010 we were also able to help a Welsh-American harpist get to Wales for an international youth harping competition.
