Edge Arts & Students

Edge Arts is the hub of creative life on campus. There are lots of opportunities for students, staff and the local community to get involved in the arts in our fantastic venue The Edge. You can learn an instrument, take a dance or art class, have a look at our free gallery exhibitions or come and see a performance, whatever your interests there are plenty of ways for you to be creative.

Working alongside the Student’s Union, Edge Arts also supports the creative endeavours of student societies, many of which make use of our state-of-the-art facilities. The Edge Arts team’s experienced staff have fantastic links with the professional art world, so we often bring in practicing artists and performers to work with students and try to link their practice with different areas of study across campus too. We also offer a range of Arts Scholarships for those interested in pursuing their creative passions.

You may have chosen a science, business or technical degree, but the arts will help you relax and see things from a different perspective. It’s all part of having the best experience possible whilst here at Bath, and you can get involved for fun, or to take your arts studies to the next level.

To hear more about what’s happening here on campus or in Bath and Bristol you can join the Edge Arts Community (EAC) for FREE. You’ll receive a monthly newsletter and be invited to see and take part in a whole range of opportunities. To find out more about the EAC click here.
