CreateFest 2020 - Waterford Festival of Creativity

CreateFest, Waterford’s Festival of Creativity comes to a laptop near you this November. Following on from the huge success of its inaugural year, the festival brings the people of Waterford the opportunity to engage with professionals and practitioners working in various careers in the creative industries while providing a platform for discussion, networking and learning.

From November 5th – 7th, CreateFest provides an open forum to engage with and learn from peers and professionals in the areas of Media, Visual Arts, Photography, Theatre, Music and Street Art.

Have you always wanted to chat with and ask those questions from those at the top of their professions? How did they get there? What worked for them? What are the opportunities and pitfalls? Well, this is your opportunity to find out!  

Get those inside tips from designers on how to meet a client’s needs, ask a music agent how to get signed or chat to an international touring musician about their best gig experiences. A series of exciting panels bring together a range of industry professionals, national and international – all with valuable insights to share!

CreateFest is for professionals and amateurs, veterans and novices, the knowledgeable and the curious… all you have to do is log in and join the forum. CreateFest is an initiative of Waterford Cultural Quarter and funded by Waterford City & County Council and Creative Ireland.
