Minutes from the Charles Street Arts Foundation Annual General Meeting, dated 27 September 1989. In addition to the usual items (those present, apologies, previous minutes, adoption of annual report, accounts) there was a long discussion about dissolving the organisation. A resolution to this effect attracted no votes and was defeated. A proposal by Robert Davies that “a future meeting be held of a representative nature of community interests by convened with the aim to ensure the continuance of the Carnival with a view to forming a Committee to continue the present organising structure.” [sic] This motion was passed unanimously, and a meeting arranged for 25 October 1989.

There followed “a long discussion about the work of the foundation with particular emphasis on the importance of the Carnival” and
“Robert Davies noted the loss of staff but stressed the importance of voluntary effort. Workcamp labour at Easter or Summer could be utilised (Toc H, IUS, UNA, Quakers). The importance of the Carnival in terms of community involvement was stressed.”

Also discussed were the involvement of young dance/theatre groups, costumes, and community involvement in music rather than expensive bands and PA equipment. “Ian Horsburgh outlined the other work of the Foundation over the years and stressed the Carnival had been only part of its work.” These ideas and others were to be discussed at the proposed meeting.

Robert Davies is the founder of Voluntary Community Service (Cymru).

This meeting followed a difficult period, as the offices at 54 Charles Street had been lost at the end of September 1988 and termination of funding in February 1989 had resulted in the loss of paid staff and a return to being a voluntary body.

In June 1977, Cardiff Community Concern started the Charles Street Carnival as a community groups' alternative celebration of the Queen's Silver Jubilee. This became an annual event and grew into a separate organisation, Charles Street Arts Foundation. The Foundation came to employ artists and staff but was founded and run by volunteers. Cardiff Community Concern, also founded and run by volunteers, was an alternative advice and information centre for young people, based in 58 Charles Street.
