Connecting the dots for Swansea’s Creative Economy

At 4theRegion we still believe that the creative industries present a huge opportunity for jobs, entrepreneurship, regeneration and wellbeing across Swansea! We know that many partners across the city, and many creative people, are working to make the vision of Swansea as a creative, digital and cultural hotspot, a reality! Swansea Creative Focus exists to connect people, share updates on what’s happening, and co-create new projects and initiatives related to the creative sector in Swansea. After a three year gap, we are BACK for an in person get together at Elysium Gallery & Bar, 210 High St, Swansea SA1 1PE.

Whether you are part of Swansea’s creative scene, running related events or activities, part of a local creative business, or keen to get more involved in promoting creativity and creative enterprise across the city, we hope you will join this friendly and informal networking event. At 4theRegion our goals are collaboration, positivity and empowerment – so everyone is welcome and we can’t wait to see you!

Swansea Creative Focus arose from conversations at 4theRegion’s City Centre Conference in 2019, which brought 600 residents and businesses to talk about the challenges and opportunities facing the city.

The need to link up and co-promote independent creative and cultural businesses and venues emerged as a key theme during the discussions, as well as the need to nurture creative talent in the city and create a sense of belonging for local residents. Following this, a Creative Quarter Roundtable event was convened by 4theRegion to continue the conversation, and from here, a working group emerged, to form Swansea Creative Focus.
