OUR CREATIVE & DIGITAL MEMBERS

As well as networking opportunities, important roundtable discussions, and the ability to get their voices heard at a regional level, we support our members in the Creative & Digital sector by promoting the importance of creativity and innovation to the future flourishing of our economy.  The Creative Economy is one of our six impact areas, because nurturing creativity and culture in our towns and cities is how we'll create successful and attractive places that people want to live and work in.  We're developing Swansea's Creative Quarter and involving creative businesses across the region in helping to shape our regional identity.  We also host the Creative & Digital Zone at the annual city centre conference in Swansea.
