Take Part

Bristol+Bath Creative R+D consists of five Pathfinders - themed creative R&D projects - running until 2023. Across this time we will have a range of opportunities open to individuals and businesses in our region.

Pathfinder specific opportunities include:

  • Fellowships across New Talent, Inclusion, Industry and Academia
  • Industry Partnerships
  • Funding for R+D Prototypes

There are no Pathfinder opportunities open at the moment - but there will more to come in the future. You can read about our next pathfinder, Amplified Publishing here and find out more about current cohorts and prototype projects in Digital Placemaking and Expanded Performance here.

Alongside our Pathfinders, we are building connections and collaborations across the creative and technology sectors and the universities in Bristol and Bath. Please get in touch if you would like to talk to us about this:

As part of this project, the UWE Research Team are conducting a study - From Catastrophe to opportunity? Unpacking the impact of COVID 19 on the creative and cultural industries in south west England. We want to see how you have adapted, what future planning you are doing and most importantly how you can be supported to recover. It would be incredibly useful for our research if you could give us 15-20 minutes to fill in the survey here.

We are also host to Creative Workforce for the Future, working with cultural organisations and companies across the region to connect them to exceptional talent from underrepresented backgrounds. Creative Workforce for the Future are currently looking for small to medium (SME) sized creative companies in the West of England to work with on inclusion readiness, and to host a paid placement.

All future opportunities will be announced here, in our newsletter and on twitter.
