Threads is a broadcast platform connecting local communities across the world and empowering people to express themselves through music, discussion and art.
Threads is based at The Cause in Tottenham, a music venue which has made a huge impact since its launch in 2018. Tottenham itself has been subject to considerable social and political change in recent years. Whilst some of this change is undeniably contentious, music and the arts are thriving. Threads intends to be at the forefront of this exciting cultural activity, whilst engaging with the wide range of issues people face in the area. The station actively engages with the communities, providing a credible broadcast platform for local people to have airspace for their unique narratives.
The station also features a second stream Threads* which showcases an array of content from across the world, with growing hubs in places such as Aubervilliers, Skopje, Wedding and Bushwick. As with our Tottenham arm, Threads* actively engages with and participates in the issues facing the communities it streams from.
The individual streams on Threads* often identify themselves in a hyper-local fashion, highlighting the specific districts, rather the city, of its contributors; for example Threads*Haira (a district in Lanzarote) or Threads*Vinohrady (a district in Prague).
A global station with a local focus.
