“Congratulations to all involved in the Bath Theatre Matters conference.
Such an important & brilliant initiative. Bravo!”
West End Producer
In 2013 we asked Does Bath Theatre Matter?
In 2014 we Broke Boundaries.
This year we want to start Bridging The Gaps.
What Can We Do About Equality In The Arts?
– This section will cover topics on gender, age and opportunities.
Speakers to be announced soon!
Bath, Bristol & Wiltshire – Let’s Work Together!
– What more can be done to create better working relationships with our two closest counties?
– How can we work more effectively together?
Featuring a keynote speaker from each of the three areas giving their views on what we can do to support each other more and bridge the gap.
What Do We Want For The Future Of The Arts In Bath?
This section features five sound bite talks from local arts organisations talking about their vision for the future of Bath.
Speakers will include the Cultural Forum for the Bath Area, Crane Works and more to be confirmed.
After each session you will have your chance to put questions to our speakers and join in the lively discussions and play an integral part in shaping the future of the arts in Bath. This is our city and we have a responsibility to keep the arts at the forefront of our creative ecology.
Keynote speakers will be announced over the coming weeks. Watch this space!
‘A conference? This event felt a little different…full of passionate, vibrant people, it transcends into an engaging and challenging discussion’
