About Creative Cuppa: January (Newport)

Creative Cardiff, in partnership with Newport Council, is hosting a monthly gathering for artists, businesses and creative freelancers between January - March 2024, called 'Creative Cuppa'. These informal events will bring Newport's creative community together for the all-important three Cs - connection, creativity and caffeine.

Join us for a chance to meet, connect and learn from other creatives, whether you're just starting out or have been working in the industry for decades. Each Creative Cuppa starts with a TED-style talk on a theme that is relevant across all creative sectors, followed by an informal hour to sit down, chat and eat cake! These are relaxed gatherings to meet other creatives and share opportunities.

Creating digital content
This month's Creative Cuppa will begin with a short talk by journalist and copywriter, Amy Pay, on creating content.

Amy Pay is a highly experienced freelance journalist, copywriter and creative consultant based in the Cardiff Capital Region. With a varied background in print media, broadcasting and digital journalism, she uses her skills to help people to get their stories across through words, strategy and creative ideas. She's worked with clients big and small, including Lonely Planet, Visit Wales, The Telegraph, Evening Standard and The Guardian, with specialisms including UK travel, small businesses, specialty coffee and creative industries. As a freelancer, Amy enjoys having the freedom to embrace all sorts of creative hobbies, from pottery and flower arranging to music and video games.
