Bristol Creative Industries working with WECA’s Regional Recovery Taskforce

1st June 2020

The West of England Combined Authority Mayor Tim Bowles has been asked by Government to set up a Regional Recovery Taskforce to identify the challenges and opportunities affecting Economic Regional recovery and renewal from Covid19. The aim of the Task Force is to identify the adverse economic impacts of the pandemic and drive renewal of the region’s recovery that is clear and inclusive.

Under this Task Force are a number of Sector Specific Groups. We’re delighted that Bristol Creative Industries Chair, Chris Thurling, will be joining the Creative Industries and Digital Technologies Group to represent the views of the region’s creative sector.

This provides an opportunity for the views of our members, past and present, to be heard regionally and nationally. It’s also for those views to influence the plans for the SW’s creative sector to recover from COVID19.  It’s vital that we gather as many views as possible ahead of the kick-off meeting on Friday 5th June so Chris can share a representative viewpoint.

Please complete this short survey by 5pm on Thursday 4th June at the very latest.

Together we’re greater than the sum of our parts.
