Short statement on the work National Museum of Wales do and our association with them which has run for over 5 years.

As the Director of Oasis Cardiff a centre for asylum seekers and refugees my experience of the National Museum Wales has been an extremely positive one. We have worked with them on exhibitions, been on steering groups and taken clients to discuss issues and share similar heritage themes. My concern would be that if National Museum Wales merges community organisations will have reduced access and the independence of the National Museum Wales has given scope to projects which are exciting, pushing boundaries and challenge people's perceptions. This merger will reduce the possibilities considerably.
