Creative Bath couldn’t exist without the help and support of our partnerships. We thank every one of our Partners for helping us promote, support and bring together the creative sector in Bath its surrounding areas. Please find more information on each one of our partners below.
The council has been very supportive towards Creative Bath from inception. That support has not just been the all-important funding but also in offering guidance and support when needed.
We work closely with B&NES to make sure that the strategic aims of the sector are aligned with the Council’s and with the overall Creative and Cultural Strategy for the area.
Our connection with Bath Spa University has been strong for many years, and only continues to go from strength to strength.
We have special offers to students from Bath Spa University and hold inspiring events for the University on campus. Bath Spa University is a creative focused University with many varied courses on offer for students who want their creativity to flow
Similar to Creative Bath, Bristol Media aims to support, develop and grow its local creative/media community. Together Creative Bath and Bristol Media seek to help bridge the gap between the two cities and offer support to anyone working in both Bath and Bristol.
We also work with Bristol Media to promote the sector more widely through the region.
Creative Bath receives a range of support from the media company behind various local magazines and events.
One of the most creative spaces in the city, Creative Bath holds many events at The Guild: Coworking Bath. The Hub hosts many varied creative sorts from developers to writers, teachers to designers, and many more.
The Theatre Royal Bath is one of the most important organisations in the creative and cultural sector in the region. We have worked closely with it since launch, including using the Ustinov studio for our Keynotes.
The Theatre is a registered charity, which supports a wide range of performers. In July 2015, it announced the Creative Fund: a new arts funding project, supporting artists, practitioners, performers and societies in Bath and the surrounding areas. Creative Bath has been a keen promoter of this innovative initiative.
We cross-promote and work increasingly closely with the Cultural Forum, which acts to promote the cultural sector in Bath. The two organisations are natural partners, since all cultural organisations are creative; and many creative companies are also cultural.
The 30-year old international media business Future is Bath’s largest creative company. It publishes magazines and websites and runs events. It employs around 600 people in Bath and contracts with numerous freelances.
Creative Bath is a key part of this new organisation which is being established in Bath. Creative and Cultural Bath acts as an umbrella across Creative Bath, the Cultural Forum and The Coworking Hub.
