Channel 4’s Chief Executive, Alex Mahon and the Channel 4 Board confirmed this week that Bristol has been chosen as the home of a new Creative Hub.
The Channel 4 Executive team and Channel 4 Board believed that Bristol best delivered against the vision and objectives set out for the new Creative Hubs. They said:
“In Bristol there is the opportunity to build on a thriving television production sector in the City, which has world-renowned factual producers and also has strengths in areas such as animation and digital production.
Locating in Bristol will also enable Channel 4 to work closely in partnership with Cardiff and its production sector – with the opportunity to further accelerate the growth of the creative cluster around South West England and South Wales – and also connect with indies across the West of England, Birmingham and the Midlands.
Bristol put forward exciting proposals to establish new social mobility initiatives to work with diverse communities across the city and bring through new talent into the industry.”
Alex Mahon, Channel 4 Chief Executive said:
Establishing a Creative Hub in Bristol gives Channel 4 the opportunity to build on thriving production communities in the city and to partner with Cardiff and harness the power of the wider creative industry across the South West and Wales. The city also put forward exciting social mobility proposals to develop talent across the wider region.
