Christopher Commander
I would like to rerun for the position of Events Manager as I would like to continue to extend my involvement within Rare in an administrative sphere, complementing my experience as a host on this station. Naturally, holding this position this year has afforded me insight into its workings, which is inherently beneficial. For instance, despite the constraints of COVID-19, I worked alongside this year’s President to organise and DJ a sold-out event between Rare and LSE’s Pulse as part of a collaborative, COVID-secure night at Costa del Tottenham.
When nightclubs reopen, I will be resuming a residency at Ministry of Sound and have been booked for another at Notting Hill Arts Club, which has afforded me a host of experience in finding suitable venues, liaising with organisers and booking acts. I also have previous experience in playing Rare FM events, such as last year’s collaboration at The Social between Rare and Savage, which gave me insight into the society’s target audience, venue tastes and artist preferences. Finally, my appointment as this year’s Head of DJs at UCL’s Electronic Music Society has complementary perspective regarding organising music-related events, as well as realise the value of investing in more cross-collaboration among UCL’s music-oriented societies; an avenue that could yield diverse and rewarding event possibilities. Thank you!
