Chapter Creative Community
We were so pleased to be able to re-open our studios this month and welcome back our creative community of tenants. Many have adapted what they do and are offering online and bespoke services as we all re-adjust to a new way of life. Some of our artists, composers, photographers, actors and musicians tell us what they’ve been doing in lockdown and what they can offer from their studios at Chapter.
