Creative Cardiff's 'Show & Tell' is a quarterly event that gives a platform to the exciting range of creative people and projects in the city. It brings together Cardiff’s creative community, from emerging talent to old hands, to hear about their current projects and ambitions.

Each of the speakers will give a 10-minute lightning talk. And they'll bring an object. The object might be the source of their inspiration, a tool of their trade or a comfort blanket. The speakers will share their work and explain the importance of the object they've brought along. 


Bizzy Day is the Executive Director of The Other Room, Cardiff’s Pub Theatre. Prior to co-founding the theatre with Artistic Director Kate Wasserberg, Bizzy worked as a freelance fundraiser and business planning adviser in the arts. An actor in a previous life, Bizzy established her current career in 2014 while training as an arts fundraiser on the Arts & Business Cymru Creative Internships scheme. 

Bizzy is responsible for the executive, strategic and financial side of The Other Room, leading on sustainability and entrepreneurial leadership and producing the theatre's plays. Ever the strategist, Bizzy thrives in the high pressure environment and enjoys the creative challenge of keeping the theatre going.
