Inspired by Ignite Cardiff, Detroit Soup, Big Moose, and TEDx Cardiff (and in conjunction with Welsh ICE), Eyes Wide Open is an opportunity to hear a perspective on a topic or story from a different angle.

Last Friday (25/09), saw the launch of the first Eyes Wide Open at Cardiff Central Library. The projects highlighted were:

Inner Strength UK

Heads Above The Waves

Dance Therapy Cardiff

Each event features a speaker from three areas of society – sports & culture, business, and politics – but there is a key difference; all of the money raised on the door will go to local projects. This is inspired by Detroit Soup, which is a monthly dinner that directly funds creative projects in Detroit with micro-grants.
