The results have been gathered for the 2016 Creative, Cultural and Tech Survey and can be found here.
Two thirds of Bath’s creative and tech sector are positive about Bath, believing that it is growing as a place for creative and tech companies.
But they think more should be done to promote the sector nationally outside the city. And one key barrier to growth is available workspace as well as lack of funding and recruitment/talent issues.
These are some of the findings of the survey conducted by Creative Bath, The Guild and the Cultural Forum. There was a huge response: over 200 companies and organisations took the time to let us know their views.
Other responses indicate that Creative Bath is regarded as a useful source of information. Some 82% of respondents are Bath-based and over 70% are in organisations of five or fewer people, reflecting the ‘long tail’ of Bath’s creative sector. Just under a quarter (45 businesses) have taken on interns/work placements.
This is the first of what is hoped to be a series of surveys, with others concentrating on the financial development of the sector. The findings have been shared with B&NES and we await their response.
