Last week saw the launch of The Unit, our new partnership with Keighley Creative, backed by Channel 4 and Bradford Council – to create and access space for content creators and filmmakers in the Bradford district.
- Mayor Tracy Brabin and Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe on supporting the creative industries and strengthening the region’s role as a cultural hub
- Filmmaker Louisa Rose Mackleston and Keighley Creative trustee, Riaz Meer on their hopes for The Unit and the impact it’ll have in communities across the district
- Channel 4’s Kevin Blacoe on plans for a new digital content fund and Channel 4’s role in supporting the screen sector and The Unit.
We also introduced The Unit’s team – Banita Bangar, Jordon Scott Kennedy and Jacqui Griffin – and encouraged guests to take a look at the space and equipment we’ve setup for filmmakers and content creators. Our own hosts, Aila and Esha were on hand to capture messages of support which you’ll find on the noticeboard inside The Unit!
