Creative Bubble

Swansea Metropolitan (University of Wales: Trinity Saint David) will make use of a city-centre commercial unit to create economic and social impacts for the city, through the arts, in an innovative new project with Swansea BID (Business Improvement District) called 'Creative Bubble'.

Swansea BID is the organisation behind this new collaboration. They represent over 800 businesses in Swansea city centre. Working alongside South Wales Police, the City and County of Swansea and other public agencies and associations, they deliver leadership along with marketing and operational improvements for businesses located in the BID area.

'Creative Bubble' will be based in a disused commercial unit on Craddock Street. It will provide an area where Swansea Met can develop and plan creative ideas that will use the city centre as a canvas for both creative practice and entrepreneurial and business developments.

Drawing on the creative energies, knowledge and experience of the staff, students and graduates from across Swansea Met, the project will develop creative arts activity. This will include theatre games, where participants follow clues around the city centre and meet unusual characters along the way. The shop will also be used for pop-up exhibitions and small performances.
