The Edge is an arts and creativity hub informed by the context of the University of Bath. The centre offers an active, creative environment for people from all walks of life and endeavours to have a positive impact on the lives of the audiences we serve. It is a space for leisure, creative learning and fulfilment, as well as being a space for thinking, questioning and discussing important social and topical issues.

Working with our local communities and neighbours is therefore important, as it enables us to understand the interests and needs of the people that make up Bath and the surrounding areas, which helps us develop our programme of activities. Community engagement can happen in many different forms and we are always looking for new ways to connect.
