Creative Bath is introducing a membership charge to enable us to continue our work providing information, training, lobbying and valuable connections for Bath’s creative professionals. Read on to find out what you get as a member - and the reasons why we’re doing this.
The charge is set low at just £25 per person (£20 for students) and covers the period to March 31st 2011. We want to have as many people involved with Creative Bath as we can, so that it remains valuable for Members and is representative of all areas of the creative sector in B&NES.
This Membership period includes free attendance at our exclusive, unmissable 2010 Keynote from Chris Anderson, owner of the TED conference (www.ted.com) and founder of Future Publishing.
Creative Bath is working hard for creative companies and creative people in Bath. To continue to promote your sector, provide great events and valuable training, and help shape Bath’s future takes resource. We think it is fair to ask our members to make a modest contribution.
We look forward to your support.

Reasons for charging
• Our activities have real value and provide benefit to Creative Bath members
• We need to begin the process to become self-sufficient – obviously in current times, we can’t rely on B&NES and the public sector for funding, and nor would we wish to
• It’s important for Creative Bath to be independent to aid our lobbying
• With a modest payment comes a better connection to Creative Bath for members
• Creative Bath needs funding to continue its work
• We’re also seeking sponsorship, but we think it fair to ask our members to make their own contribution
