Kick-Start: Cardiff (Wales) - Part of Creative Tracks

Kick-Start: Cardiff, part of the EU funded project Creative tracks, aims to be a catalyst event bringing together emerging international creative voices with the thriving arts and creative industries scene in Wales to explore their value and role in regeneration.


The event will invite delegates to exchange ideas on three key themes:
- urbanisation
- how the arts and creative industries are driving regional/ rural economies
- workspaces and new ways of working

Eligibility: Upcoming artists and creative entrepreneurs - particularly those in the fields of music, TV, product design, or whose work connects with the fields of science and technology.


Participants can gain new knowledge and skills, pitch their projects, and make exciting international connections. The programme includes a workshop day, an arts and law seminar, a panel discussion event and lots of networking opportunities, with the chance to pitch work to industry experts and potential investors.
