Creative Economy

We are working with others to make Cardiff a capital of creativity.

We are supporting the city's creative economy and encouraging people to work together to raise the city's ambitions. We're enabling our staff and students to engage with the creative industries. And we're developing plans to create physical and virtual spaces that allow these collaborations to take place.
