Iniva contributes to a new initiative showcasing emerging creatives through online profiling of the arts and creative industries with Hackney Council on Hackney Live.
Hackney Live is being piloted to explore the online opportunities for arts and culture in the borough. It will test the appetite for audiences wanting to access the arts online in Hackney for free. The site will showcase dance, music and contemporary visual arts.
On February 27 Iniva’s contribution of the series ‘Artist in the studio’ pre-recorded videos begin to go live over 4 weeks. The videos showcase artsits Larry Achiampong, Aya Haider, Christa Holka and the Stööki collective. The videos provide viewers with an insight into how artists work and pathways to careers in contemporary arts.
Along with the 4 indepth artist videos, Iniva has also contributed 10 short videos exploring professions in the arts which can be accessed at anytime on the Hackney Live website.
Hackney Live combines live streaming events with East London Dance and music with Rising Tide, with Invia contributing on-demand material. The desire is for audiences to engage in live conversation via social media during and post events.
Iniva would like to thank researcher Yolanda Hanson, editor Jess Harrington and arts professionals Adealide Bannerman, Beddows & Battini, Cassius Coleman, Carnaby Book Exchange, Sew-Ling Chew, Jem Doulton, Denzil Forrester, Karen Muhl, Morgan Quaintance, Tot Taylor and Jen Wu.
