Review of The Bath Theatre Matters Conference

Are the arts in a rut? How much of an impact will Local Authority and Arts Council funding cuts have on organisations? Is it right or wrong that you should be expected to work for free and what rights do you have to protect you as an individual? Is enough being done to support actors with mental health and anxiety issues? Are amateur, community and youth dirty words? 

This conference is open to anyone with an interest in theatre and we encourage you all to join the debates, network and discuss the future of theatre and the arts in Bath.
