Our Story

Ignite – Festival of Creativity is a celebration of creative talent in Plymouth.

The inaugural Ignite Festival of Creativity takes place throughout June 2019 and comprises a programme of events, activity and networking opportunities to showcase and engage Plymouth’s creative talent.

Underpinned by the Graduate Shows from the University of Plymouth and Plymouth College of Art, the Ignite programme will examine how we can harness creativity to create a sustainable, inclusive economy that is at the heart of a bright future for Plymouth.

What is next for creative students and graduates?

How can Plymouth-based businesses engage with and benefit from creative talent?

How can we bring together Plymouth’s wider creative community?

What are the big issues surrounding creativity in the city?

Explore all this and more with Ignite throughout June 2019.

Ignite has been developed by Plymouth College of Art and the University of Plymouth, working with the Real Ideas Organisation, and has been supported with funding from the Cultural Development Fund through Arts Council England and DCMS.
