Creative Cardiff is bringing Show & Tell to new creative space, SHIFT, on Saturday 13 April 3-4pm, with a focus on the theme of Sound+Vision as part of Cardiff's International Photography Festival, Diffusion.
Creative Cardiff's Show & Tell is an event which 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, who all work within the realms of Sound and Vision, will share their work and explain the importance of the object they've brought along.
Throughout the day (from 11am-5pm) Diffusion will be putting the spotlight on the creative community in Cardiff with a makers fayre to give artists, producers, makers and designers a chance to showcase their work, to sell their wares and to network within our thriving creative scene. Come to Shift under Capitol Shopping centre and there'll be exhibitions and talks all day, or drop in for our Show & Tell at 3pm!
