Pick of the Week 2016

May's Guest Editor: Chris Lethbridge

Every month we invite a Guest Editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This May we welcome Bath Artists' Studios Development Officer, Chris Lethbridge.


Chris Lethbridge is development officer for Bath Artists’ Studios (BAS) an educational charity and vibrant community of 60 artists and makers situated close to Bath City Centre. From late 2016 until the end of next year, BAS will be celebrating 20 years since its foundation. Chris’s work focuses on building partnership relationships between BAS and other organisations that will grow its presence and impact as a cultural asset for the city and region. 

Born in Bath and raised in Wiltshire, Chris recently returned to the area after many years in visual arts and creative industries development in Manchester. Throughout his career he has opted to work within or on behalf of artist-led organisations. This is reflected in his current role at BAS and also (in his freelance capacity) through continuing relationships supporting artists’ groups in the North West. As well as his work in arts development Chris is also a somewhat erratic artist!
