Bristol Media working with WECA's Regional Recovery Taskforce

Published on Monday, 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 and we’re delighted to say that Bristol Media’s Chair, Chris Thurling, will be joining the Creative Industries and Digital Technologies Group to represent the views of the region’s creative sector. 

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

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!
