Cornwall Social Media Café and Tremough Innovation Centre will be hosting an evening of talks on the subject of creativity next month.
Taking place on the rooftop terrace on Tuesday July 9, guests will be invited to hear presentations from leading creatives drawn from the areas of business, advertising, product design and art.
The keynote speech will be delivered by professional writer, marketer and gardener Simon Minchin. Minchin spent ten years of his career managing the creativity of others, as a creative group head in London and executive creative director of Saatchi & Saatchi in South Africa.
He will be supported by internationally-renowned abstract artist, Chris Billington, and Lloyd Pennington of Buff Design, a Cornish product design and development company.
The event, which includes a barbecue and refreshments, is free to attend and will be the first to be held on the rooftop terrace (weather permitting).
Event organiser, Aren Grimshaw, said: “Creativity drives innovation in all walks of life; however, it is an area that is often misunderstood and one that people have difficulty in understanding how to harness its potential.
“We hope that this event will inspire people to become more creative and realise the benefits that a more creative approach can bring to them and their community.”
The event runs from 6.30 – 8.30pm, anybody wishing to attend can register here.
