About The Edge and Edge Arts

Since opening in 2015, the University of Bath’s arts and creativity hub The Edge has successfully offered its programme to a growing visitor base. The centre offers an active environment for people from all walks of life, fostering transformative and personal growth derived from arts-centric approaches. Exhibitions, performing arts presentations, talks, arts classes, family and community events provide experiences of educational, emotional, intellectual benefit often in participatory forums. 

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. Current exhibition Brutalist Playground is an example of this. It showcases the creativity in architecture and evidences links to the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering. 

Programmes at The Edge and elsewhere are coordinated by Edge Arts, (formerly ICIA), the University of Bath’s unit for the provision of arts for public consumption. Edge Arts also support the extra- curricular interests of students engaged in the performing and visual arts and increasingly the research synergies between staff and students and the creative profession.
