createcolla

Create & Collaborate is a Networking event that brings together students & graduates from a range of courses within the creative industries, and creative working professionals. Encouraging them to join forces and develop their strengths. Each event brings together a network of creatives and gives them the opportunity to work collaboratively across the disciplines. By extending this network, students and graduates are able to develop creative working relationships with like-minded individuals and use these connections to make links with future projects and enterprise opportunities.

Previous guests have included representatives from: Orchard Media, Creative Skills, Ffilm Cymru, National Theatre Wales, Cardiff TV, Hay Festival.


Create & Collaborate will soon be branching out to other sectors and faculties – if you’d like to support Create & Collaborate on your campus, connect with us!
