Cobalt Studios Autumn Programme 2021
Date(s): Sept - Dec 2021
An introduction to Cobalt’s autumn programme:
After 18 months of sad empty walls and uncertainty we are re-launching our full seasonal programme and excited to get the room filled once more with people, music and positivity!
Here’s what you need to know. We are going to be open most days of the week from Sept 20th – Dec 19th, we will follow the same pattern each week moving from community events to creative learning, live music and finishing with a club night each Saturday and occasional Sunday pop-ups.
We have programmed over 90 events between now and Xmas. We’re a tiny team and it’s been a rough year but against the odds we’re ready to go. We are committed to and excited by each and every one of the events that are about to happen. Ideally these events would have been advertised weeks ago but it’s simply not been that kind of a year! Being honest we are entirely dependent on your support, we don’t have any programme funding at the moment and we have large loans to pay back post Covid.
We are waiting on an application outcome for program funding and our Covid grants & loans we are investing in longer term capital developments for sustainability, but at this point in time we are delicate, to say the least; and we have thrown all that we have at this in somewhat blind faith that people are going to come out again. Please let us be right!
We feel music and art in our bellys & our bones, we believe that culture transforms, unites & way, way more. All this stuff is so hard to express, without being cheesybut this is why we do Cobalt. It’s what drives us, it’s uphill all the way most of the time, but always so very worth it and never more so than now. Dr Oliver Sacks says it much better than us… “Music imprints itself in the brain deeper than any other human experience. Music evokes emotion and emotion can bring memory. Music brings back the feeling of life when nothing else can.”
We look forward to coming back to life and hope to see you very soon. – Kate, Mark & The Team x
