'Ignite: For Good' presentation 4: Craneworks: Centre for Invention, Rhodri Samuel

Published on

This is Rhodri Samuel from Cranework's presentation which he gave during the 'Ignite: For Good' evening mySociety hosted on 29th October 2014 as part of the Bath Digital Festival. Description: Bath needs a space for art and design, conferences, learning and experimenting for people of all ages - and a great new cafe/bar and public space wouldn't hurt. We intend to bring all those things together in one unique facility, right on the river and within walking distance of the centre of this wonderful world heritage city.
