Arts and Business Cymru Awards Ceremony was not only an amazing fun night but it was eye opening for me to see what can be achieved with collabouration between business and the arts.
I was so lucky to win the National competition to create the 11 awards, which were given at an amazing Black Tie event at the Millenium Centre in Cardiff Bay. The Awards evening was so much fun with entertainment from Juke box and Boyz Aloud, great company (Gareth Lloyds Evans from Aberystwith Arts Centre made me laugh all eveing) and fabulous meal. But what struck me most was how potent, effective and fun collabourations can be. Those collabourations that were nominated showed what A & B Cymru is all about. Really effective ways that business and Arts can work together to help each other. Here are some piccies of the Award Ceremony and dancers from Jukebox Collective and former members of the hit choir, Only Boys Aloud
