Once you’ve visited a participating gallery and spotted a piece of art you’d like to buy, ask the gallery staff about applying for a Collectorplan loan. They’ll be able to fill in the application form with you and send it to us at Arts Council of Wales for approval.

Once we’ve completed the necessary checks, we’ll be in touch to let you know if your loan application has been successful. If so, we’ll send you your approved loan agreement, which you can then use to collect your artwork from the gallery.
