Fire Starter Wales

The Fire Starter Festival has begun to create a movement around showcasing and encouraging creativity and innovation for social change and transformation, enabling people to be part of a national programme while still being able to focus on local change and issues.

Fire Starter Wales is designed to bring the Fire Starter ethos to Wales, to celebrate the various creative and innovative ways in which we are all contributing to the creation of a Wales that we all want to live in, now and in the future. It’s also a way of addressing the longer term needs of the Well-being of Future Generations Act.

The inaugural Fire Starter Wales Festival will be held between 27th January and 14th February 2020. The majority of events are hosted by communities along with partners and colleagues from across public, voluntary and private sector services in Wales.
