Our City is rapidly loosing affordable spaces as developers and corporate interests encroach. These spaces are the test beds for enterprising, ethical, experimental creative and cultural practice. Spaces where we explore, rehearse, take risk, reflect, converse and share. Can we work better together to support the wellbeing of future grassroots arts and cultural practice?
Creative Commons Cardiff is a movement set up to collectively and collaboratively campaign with and on behalf of individuals, groups and organisations working at the grassroots of the creative and cultural sectors across the City. Our long term vision is to develop innovative, community-owned and run cultural spaces complementing existing best practice and connecting across sectors to identify and realise new opportunities.
Our ethos is rooted in citizenship, mutuality and collective action. We intend to develop a mutually beneficial community powered network of cultural spaces that are not only supportive but also radically entrepreneurial and economically sustainable. We will do this through a process of dialogue, collaboration and - if needs be - we are not afraid to drive policy development. It is time for action.
We encourage all affected grassroots creative & cultural workers to become members so we can work together openly, equitably and wisely.
