Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV) commissioned us to support the delivery of their EVOLUTION conference for young musicians and music practitioners in July 2021. Taking place during the easing of UK lockdown easing the conference took place entirely virtually.
LOV wanted to create a rich interactive experience for participants and audience members featuring a mixture of live-streamed panels, remote streamed performances and interactive workshops. We needed to manage central live streams, audience migration, supply the relevant equipment and training to make sure that the LOV team could self manage the remote live streams.
We supported LOV in marketing the three-day digital conference by creating content for social media, press releases. The conference marked the culmination of the 3-year EVOLVE project and included the release of two digital toolkits, which we designed for LOV, aimed at aspiring arts practitioners and school music teachers.
"I’m seriously impressed by how well everything was brought together – no mean feat given the amount of technical know-how that must have been required."

Feedback from participants and funders alike showed the conference as an overwhelming success. LOV themselves were able to relax and do their job as hosts and facilitators knowing that the technical aspects of the conference were in hand, including those at remote sites. Our marketing efforts helped yield an engaged and interested audience and the toolkits have been downloaded and shared across sponsors participants and the wider public.
