COLLABORATIVE PROJECT

SWANSEA CREATIVE FOCUS

Working from our High Street Hub, Swansea Creative Focus is a collaboration by independent businesses, organisations and people, taking on the challenge of grassroots regeneration in Swansea City Centre, aiming 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.
