On Saturday 28th September we’re going to be hosting our first ever Set Sail event in Manchester. It’s going to be an evening of sharing our vision, celebrating all that we’ve been doing over the last four years - with testimonies, live music from Rivers & Robots and some solo tunes from our members Jonathan Ogden and Philip Shibata, as well as a look at what we’ll be doing in the future and how you can be a part of it.

This week, the popular gospel artist Tasha Cobbs Leonard appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series. A regular show which features some of today’s top artists performing in a small corner of the NPR office. Starting off as featuring many up-and-coming indie artists and branching out to feature a broad range of acts such as Anderson Paak, Khalid, Yo-Yo Ma, Tyler The Creator, Tom Misch, Mac Miller and even Sesame Street recently!
A couple of months ago we left our old office and moved into a new space near media city in Salford. It’s the first time moving to a completely unfurnished room and we really enjoyed getting to set out the space exactly how we wanted. We took the opportunity to really think through what a Set Sail office should look like - how we could cater for having space to create, shoot videos, collaborate, write blogs and be flexible even with a small team and one room. Jonathan explains why we laid things out the way we did in our latest video!
