The Art of Collaboration

This iteration of CAKE will feature speakers from across the North East, from businesses and the cultural sector. All will give insight into the 'art of collaboration', with notable examples of where creativity and innovation allow for remarkable collaborative working in festivals, design, and sustainability.

Presentations will be followed by an informal Q&A panel and cake-oriented networking.
