Insights

The Creative Cardiff Network highlights the fantastic people, places and activities in our city.

Cardiff People features interviews, conversations, opinions and reflections from a range of people working in or connected with Cardiff and its creative community. Our Resources are a selection of useful and inventive things created with and for the creative community. We’d like everyone – individuals, organisations, groups and networks – to get involved. If you have an idea, please get in touch. As well as running our own events, the Creative Cardiff team attend events to share them with members in Creative Cardiff at.

An aim of Creative Cardiff is to gain a better understanding of Cardiff’s creative economy. During year one, we’ve carried out Mapping research to identify those people, organisations and businesses in the city’s creative industries.
