Cultural and Creative Strategy


Leading the development of a Cultural and Creative Strategy for the city of Bath


Having recognised both the importance and the positive impact on both the economy and society by the arts, culture, and creative industries, we worked in partnership with a wide range of key stakeholders across the city to develop a new strategy. Our partners included, B&NES, Bath Spa University, University of Bath, Cultural Forum, The Guild  and Creative Bath.


This strategy provides a framework for action which encourages a coherent, collaborative approach across the sector, Council and funding bodies to ensure cultural and creative excellence for all, and economic sustainability and growth.
