A new collaborative project by 4theRegion changemakers is launching on Swansea High Street this month. Swansea Creative Focus is a collaboration by independent businesses, organisations and people, taking on the challenge of grassroots regeneration in Swansea City Centre. The group’s aim is to support and develop the creative and cultural fabric of the city. This involves nurturing and championing creative businesses, entrepreneurs and projects; and opening up wider access to creativity, digital tech, arts, crafts & culture for all people, young and old, across the city.

We know that creating a vibrant, creative, inclusive Swansea is key to achieving our economic and social goals for the region.
