IMPACT AREA

CREATIVE ECONOMY, CULTURE & DIGITAL

We know that creating a vibrant, creative, inclusive region is key to achieving our economic and social goals.  Our mission is to make South West Wales somewhere that people want to be, by involving everyone, engaging communities, and unleashing the talent and potential of people.

“Access to talented and creative people is to modern business what access to coal and iron ore was to steel-making…  Economic growth is driven by creativity, so if we want to increase it, we have to tap into the creativity of everyone.”

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.
