Update on city’s pioneering Craneworks project to be staged by Creative Bath

August 22, 2014

Workers in Bath’s creative industries will be able to learn more about the city’s ambitious Craneworks innovation centre project at a meeting next month.

Creative Bath, the organisation that brings together those employed in media, design, marketing and PR in the city, will be giving an update on Craneworks on September 10.

The free event at the Chapel Arts Centre on Lower Borough Walls will provide an opportunity to learn about the project, which could potentially generate up to 300 jobs and give Bath its long hoped for creative industries hub.

The ambitious £15m scheme aims to regenerate the derelict Stothert & Pitt factory buildings on Lower Bristol Road into a world-class centre for innovation in the creative industries. However, it faces a major planning challenge as the site is earmarked for alternative use by Bath & North East Somerset Council.

Those behind the project see it as an essential part of ‘New Bath’ – a world-class contemporary city built around its creativity as well as its world heritage status. That, in turn, will encourage more young people to stay in the city as well as attracting new talent and businesses.

Also speaking at the event will be designer and creative technologist Jessi Baker, who has worked in digital strategy and creative technology for brands and popstars, including Will.I.Am.
