Bournemouth seems to be a hotbed of creative talent at the moment, why do you think that is?
I think Bournemouth has always had a great creative scene. But in the last decade I’d say it’s thanks to organisations like Meetdraw bringing the community together to help share ideas and energy, that great things get created and help get the attention that’s been overdue. IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT LONDON!!! The prominence of the University as well as improvements across the whole of Bournemouth by the council in recent years have also helped to make it a great place to live.
