The Edge

The Edge is a creation centre, where art is made and consumed in innovative and exhilarating ways.

Our programmes offer an active environment for people from all walks of life, fostering transformative and personal growth with a focus on educational, sensorial, emotional, intellectual and experiential activities derived from arts-centric approaches to cultural production.

Whether located at our building on campus or elsewhere, programmes are informed by our interface with core stakeholder the University of Bath and its disciplinary context. Twinned with this is our desire to inspire – and be inspired by – local communities in the region.

Liveable Cities

  • 19 October 2017 6-8pm

Cities like Melbourne, Vienna, Vancouver, Copenhagen are held up to be the world’s most ‘liveable cities’. What about the UK? Though smaller, Bath enjoys qualities that are the envy of many other cities, a thriving cultural scene, a high proportion of independent shops, outstanding green space, world class heritage and a compact walkable centre, but is there room for improvement? Organised by local architects Stride Treglown, exciting speakers explore, in a rapid PechaKucha format, what we can learn from other liveable cities and ultimately produce a manifesto of ideas and recommendations for the city.

With speakers Silvana de Soissons (Foodie Bugle), Rob Barnard-Weston (Groundswell), Marc Dix (LT Studio Landscape Architects), Dominic Tristram
(Bath Green Party), Adam Reynolds (Cycle Bath), Phil Hampshire (3Adapt), Ian Parkes & Eirini Christofidou (Stride Treglown), Charles Brindley (Active Thinking), Katharine Reeve (Bath Spa University).

Concluding with Andrew Grant (Grant Associates),in a shared event with the
Widcombe Association.
