As part of a series of events produced for Creative Tracks, aimed at connecting creative entrepreneurs worldwide, Visiting Arts will host a three day exchange and networking event in Wales from 16-19 October 2017 - coinciding with the launch of the European Network EASTN 2, SWN Festival, and celebrations for Creative Cardiff's Second Birthday.
Kick-Start: Cardiff 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. Among the high level speakers and trainers including design and media entrepreneurs, lawyers and policy makers, we are pleased to announce that John Howkins, author of 'The Creative Economy' and Ann Harrison, author of 'Music: The Business: The Essential Guide to the Law and the Deals' will be joining us.
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
Gain new knowledge and skills, pitch your projects and calls for collaboration, and make exciting international connections for life!
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 your work to industry experts and potential investors.
Kick-Start: Cardiff is produced within the framework of the EU funded project, Creative Tracks, with the support of the European Union, Wallonie Bruxelles International, Shenzen Design Week and the Asia­Europe Foundation.
The Kick-Start: Cardiff is proudly run in partnership with Welsh Government, Cardiff Council, Arts Council of Wales and its international arm Wales Arts International, Creative Cardiff, Cardiff University, British Council, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Geldards LLP, SWN Festival.
