To oversee the content development and delivery of Union Chapel’s new digital programme, In Union – bringing together a range of monetised and free content from music, arts and culture, to heritage, community programmes and social justice.
Union Chapel closed as a venue in March 2020. Since then we have been working hard to revolutionise the way we work, and the cultural and community content we have available.
We are proud to have hosted Laura Marling’s ticketed livestreamed gig back in June, the first of its kind in the UK. More recently, we are proud to have hosted livestreamed and broadcast programmes as diverse as Arlo Park, Che Lingo and Kojey Radical to Stephen Fry and Britain’s Got Talent.
And we now need to go further.
'In Union' is an evolving programme bringing together culture, community, heritage and social justice, which will focus initially on a new digital and outreach approach. With our venue operations severely disrupted, our communities unable to come together in the same way as before, with social distancing here for a while, people need hope, connection, inspiration & support.
The need to transform our operational model is vital. We aim to deliver as much of our programme as possible online, adapt how we present and share live events, work with artists and communities and create an essential new model for donations.
Our new accessible digital platform will enable communities to enjoy creative activities and content together. This is just the start for us, and will inform our way of working for years to come.
Our In Union Programme will support artists, commissioning content and connecting them to the wider sector through exiting industry networks/promotion.
