Founded in 1987 Butetown History & Arts Centre collects preserves and interprets the social and cultural history of migrants, immigrants and minorities in Wales. Through exhibitions, books, artistic and cultural events and other educational resources, we seek to promote public awareness and understanding of Wales as a culturally and ethnically diverse nation.

Our archive is a unique resource on the social and cultural history of immigrants and minorities in Wales, especially in Cardiff Bay. It contains 1000s of photographs, audio and visual recordings.

We have published many books on the culture of the docks, Cardiff Bay, and migrant communities in Cardiff, many by local writers.

Our art gallery is committed to exhibition artists from diverse cutural backgrounds, living and working in Wales.

Our current exhibition:
