Riot wins Bishopsgate Institute comms brief

13 Nov 2020 -

Following a competitive pitch, we are proud to partner with Bishopsgate Institute to help design and launch a new communications strategy. The Institute, a beautiful Grade II listed building based opposite Liverpool Street Station in the City of London, is a home for cultural events, conversation, learning and enquiry. Housing a stunning library, worthy of a movie set, and an archive of national importance focusing on London history, activism and protest, and the biggest LGBTQ+ archive in the country, the organisation prides itself on being a welcoming haven, open to all. The values, programming and content of Bishopsgate Institute are what drew us to the organisation.

Preena Gadher Riot MD said: “As an agency specialising in culture, with an emphasis on championing marginalised and diverse voices, Bishopsgate Institute is a perfect fit for us. Our values are very closely aligned, and this is what drives a successful client-agency partnership.”

“We are especially excited to showcase their treasure trove of archives documenting the extraordinary stories of ordinary people, as well as the unique and diverse range of programming and learning opportunities they host. We are looking forward to bringing more attention to the important work of Bishopsgate Institute at a national level.”

Melissa Boxall, Head of Audiences & Communications at Bishopsgate Institute, said “We are looking forward to working with the team at Riot Communications to share our work with a wider audience and shine a light on fascinating stories from our archives. We were impressed by their creative ideas, dynamic approach, and passion for our ethos.”
