    BANA's Profile Raised on the Cultural Forum for the Bath Area

    David Metcalfe, a founder member of BANA and one of the current directors of the network, has recently been elected co-Chair of the Cultural Forum for the Bath Area (CFBA). Previously a member of the Cultural Forum's executive group, David now works alongside John Struthers, Director of Bath University's Institute of Interdisciplinary Arts (ICIA) to help give arts and culture a strong collective voice in the area.

    The Cultural Forum is an independent coalition of cultural organisations - all producing events, festivals and cultural activities in and around the Bath and North East Somerset area - who have agreed to work with one another for mutual benefit and the benefit of the area overall. The Cultural Forum champions arts and culture, and its vision is to ensure that Bath and the surrounding areas continue to thrive as a centre of imagination, creativity and innovation.
