Portabella is an independent local property company who are doing things a bit differently. We’re about to embark on Brickworks, a development of 100 flats on Trade Street next to Cardiff central train station which feels like it’s going to revitalise a slightly forgotten part of town. In preparing to talk about our city, we were reminded just how exciting it feels right now and just how much it’s the thriving independent businesses that give the city its passion and its character. It’s all the people here who make our city interesting and so with the help of Fizzi Events and On Par Productions we decided to make a flim celebrating – This Is Us.
The success of the film generated some momentum and reinforced the network of support that independents have for each other so we decided to curate an event to help showcase talents, champion one another and explore collaborative opportunities.
The event was held at The Old Library in town using the newly created Llaeth & Siwgr Event Space run by Cardiff independent business stalwart and ambassador, Tim Corrigan.
