As part of a series of events produced for Creative Tracks, aimed at connecting artists and creative entrepreneurs worldwide, Visiting Arts will host an exchange and networking programme 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 Cardiff to explore their value and role in regeneration.
The event will invite delegates to exchange ideas on three key themes:
- how the arts and creative industries are driving regional/ rural economies
- workspaces and new ways of working
In this forum delegates are invited to introduce themselves and their work, exchange ideas on the themes, and continue conversations sparked at the live event.
Kick-Start: Cardiff is proudly run in partnership with Welsh Government, Cardiff Council, Cardiff University, Arts Council of Wales and its international arm Wales Arts International, Creative Cardiff, British Council, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Geldards LLP, SWN Festival.
