A few familiar faces talking shop.

A few familiar faces talking shop.

This engaging and inspiring series of short 10 minute talks will concentrate on current advances in creative thinking within education and industry in the NW.

The aim of such an event is to stimulate discussion and debate around the possibilities of creative enterprise in Ballyshannon and the northwest. There are many small businesses and individual creatives generating high quality creative output in this area. However, unemployment in the area remains much greater than the national average, and in order to assist growth in the creative sector, events offering relevant knowledge content and appropriate networking opportunities are key. The Allingham Festival is ideally positioned to encourage innovation, networking and development of creative industries locally. If you have an interest in creative enterprise or any of the topics covered below or just fancy a nosey, book yourself a seat at this FREE event.
