What are you doing 1-3 February 2022? Whatever it is, cancel it. The Creative Coalition Festival is returning for 2022, bringing together speakers from all over the creative industries for over 50 inspiring panels over 3 days. Lovely.

In their own words, the festival is a "unique blend of inspiring talks and panels, live performances, practical workshops and networking opportunities - all streamed from across the UK, directly to our audience at home. A key moment in the creative industries calendar, this is our opportunity to come together as one to shape our collective future."
