People of West Wales! We're really looking forward to descending on Cardigan with our balloons, pick a mix and post it notes ready for a day of creativity and collaboration.
If you have never been to a Skill Swap and Workout event before, let me explain a bit. It is free event run by TEAM aimed at supporting us all as TEAM members to create in an increasingly challenging financial climate.
We based the event, which we started running a few years ago, on the premise that there is far more creativity and brilliant ideas than cash floating about in Wales, and because we were gutted (and a bit fed up!) of continuously hearing friends say that they were unable to get projects that sounded fab off the ground as they couldn't afford to pay for XYZ.We decided to do something about it, and with the help and support of Anna (the TEAM assistant at the time) and Dev we started Skill Swap - an event where you could trade skills for skills rather than cash. A Skill Swap session gives you the chance to find the help you need... in return for helping others on their projects. From acting to cake-baking, directing to unicycle-riding...The list of skills encouraged is endless, and people are always leaving commenting on how they hadn't realised the extent of their own skills and that others may find them useful, as well as chuffed for having found a designer/director/actor/plumber for no money!
Alongside this we run a Workout session, where you can work on your ideas or projects with new collaborators who can help you take it to the next level. If you don't have a project, then you can come along aand meet people you do and get involved with someone elses brilliant idea.

Oh, and if someone could tell me where in Cardigan sells the best chips, that would be great!
