Pathfinders are themed, creative R+D projects designed to lead the Bristol + Bath cluster into the future, engage with emergent technologies and develop a diverse new talent base. There will be 5 Pathfinders from 2019 until 2023.
The first three Pathfinders are:
- Digital Placemaking (2019-20)
- Expanded Performance (2020-21)
- Amplified Publishing (2021-22)
- Creative Ecologies (2020-2022)

Focusing on emergent technologies, Digital Placemaking advances the use of digital technology to enhance and deepen our relationship to physical places.
Expanded Performance explores the concept of liveness and togetherness in the context of current innovations in technology across the cluster’s twin strengths of theatre and live music.
Building on the cluster's strength in publishing innovation, Amplified Publishing explores future models of content creation, discovery and distribution.
The Creative Ecologies Pathfinder is a new programme of research and experimentation for Bristol+Bath Creative R+D. Across 2021 and 2022, we’ll be exploring creativity as a networked, connected practice, not something that happens in isolation in studios, offices, or labs.
Here + There
Our final pathfinder, Here + There, is designed to explore how being locally rooted allows us to understand ourselves as part of an interconnected global network exploring through a programme of talent development, research exchange and business development.
