MORE than 70 delegates took part in a conference promoting Colchester’s creative sector.

Last week’s Creative Colchester Conference looked at developing the town’s plans for the future.

The feedback from local creative businesses, teachers, local government representatives and cultural and community organisations will develop the Creative Colchester strategy over the next five years.

The conference was organised by Colchester Council and funded by the European Union’s Interreg Cure programme, Arts Council and Haven Gateway Partnership.
