About this Event

Artis Community invite the Creative Community of Pontypridd to Clwb Y Bont to hear about current projects and ambitions of 3 speakers that will be given a 15-minute lightning talk to discuss their specific topic.

The aim of the evening is to stimulate conversation around the formation of a Creative Pontypridd network, looking at the benefits of a Creative Cardiff Network, discussing its benefits, whether it’s necessary, and to raise awareness of the research conducted so far. It will also act as a networking event for local professionals and subsequently begin the discussion of what a Creative Pontypridd network would look like.
