Welcome to the home of the RELAYS wiki space at Bath Spa University, a resource to enable staff, students and stakeholders to share information and communicate about the project.
The RELAYS (Regional Educational Legacy for Arts and Youth Sport) project seeks to engage young people in the South West in sporting and cultural events in the run up to the London 2012 Games. Led by Universities South West, through a network of regional universities and cultural organisations, RELAYS aims to blend youth sport and cultural in a vibrant mixture of activities across the region in the build up to the 2012 Games. It is funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity that has been set up to help build a lasting cultural and sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic Games and HEFCE (The Higher Education Funding Council for England).
Arilda Tymko, RELAYS Cultural Coordinator at Bath Spa University, is developing an events programme in and around Bath in partnership with students, schools, community groups, festivals and artists. The highlight will be a new arts festival called Illuminate Bath, taking place in 2010 and 2012.
