Programme Background

The Bristol+Bath Creative R+D is a first of a kind, £6.8 million collaboration between the region’s four universities - UWE, Bath Spa, the University of Bath and the University of Bristol - and digital creativity centre Watershed. The programme aims to break down the doors, connecting the worlds of university research and creative business to collectively imagine and develop the future of the creative industries.

Digital Placemaking aims to enhance and deepen the relationship between people and places. We believe the best examples of digital placemaking are co-designed by different kinds of communities, using inclusive digital technology and creative solutions to improve or enhance the public experience of place.
