We’re O2. A Telco with a network covering far and wide throughout the UK. But we’re more than that. We’re a network that’s 34 million people strong. A community, built on 35 years of connectivity. And a loyal and honoured host of 21 iconic UK music venues.
We’re on an ongoing mission to make every day better through personal experiences that count. We’re here to deliver a standout customer experience and help our community get the most out of connectivity.
This year has hit everyone hard. Music and theatre venues and the teams that build them every day have taken one of the toughest blows of all. Our music venues remain closed for the foreseeable leaving a deafening silence and a sense of despair within the heart of our communities.
This project is encouraging our local communities and music fans to stand with us in solidarity with each other, our partners – Academy Music Group, and the wider live music and entertainment industry. We’re spreading a contagious message of hope that our much loved O2 Academy venues will of course reopen and turn up the volume as soon as it’s safe to do so.
We connected 12 local artists to 14 iconic O2 Academy venues, each one painting an uplifting and energising artwork amplifying our message that This is just an interval.
Each venue’s artwork has been shared far and wide, spreading the key message through national news, socials, personal messages and more, each stirring hope and showcasing the power of connectivity and the anticipated return of live experiences.
This is just an interval.
