"Fine art, dance, theatre and poetry fall outside of our remit. Don’t worry, they’re not forgotten. Other organisations, such as the Arts Council of Wales take care of these essential and thriving areas of creativity."

As an intellectual property specialist, I am particularly interested in the digital industries and I was fortunate to meet Paul Osbaldeston, the digital lead sector development manager. Our meeting was brief but it is good to put a face to a name should we come into contact again.
Finally, I was delighted to see a strong representation from the Menai Science Park which included its managing director, Pryderi ap Rhisiart,. its outreach and community manager Emily Roberts who has recently visited the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Tanya Jones who kindly invited me to the event. The science park and North Wales Creative complement each other in that the park catalyses business opportunities while the cultural industries feed the mind and soul. Both are essential to making this region of Wales one of the most attractive places anywhere in which to work and live.
