KULTURKIRKEN JAKOB: Kulturkirken Jakob arranges concerts and cultural events in all genres and arts. Translated as “The Culture Church Jakob”, the building’s interior is a vertical 18-meters of lush acoustic awesomeness. There, they host everything from weekly masses to recordings, film screenings, theater, standup, metal, and club—with a good mix of their own productions, external organizers, and tenants

The crews running concerts and events are freelancers, while preparation and advanced aspects are done by the administration staff. This is why the flow and transfer of information is absolutely critical, and quality control must stay at 100%.
Since January 2021, Kulturkirken Jakob has used Crescat Venue as its production tool of choice.
“When we carry out an event, there are always several actors involved. We take pride in always delivering 100%, whether it is internal or external productions that take place in the house. So it is essential that the flow of information works, and that everyone has updated and relevant information “, says head of booking and program, Thor-Erik Fjellvang.
We often have most of the content that needs to be created in the system already. This makes it easier and faster in preparation – and the error rate goes down.Thor-Erik Fjellvang
In Kulturkirken there is a high level of activity with about 250 production days a year.
“With many different event types, it is important to find and sort information quickly. In addition, it is enormously more efficient to be able to reuse information and plans from previous events. We use ready-made templates in Crescat Venue, so we do not have to create all the events from scratch. We often have most of the content that needs to be created in the system already. This makes it easier and faster in preparation – and the error rate goes down “, Fjellvang continues.
Kulturkirken Jakob often plans its events several months in advance.
“Getting rid of long e-mail threads and locally stored documents has greatly simplified our job,” says Fjellvang. “Crescat is cost-effective, simple, flexible, and rich in content.”
“Crescat Venue allows us to produce a large volume of events with limited administrative resources”, Fjellvang continues. “We have now also collected event reports, timesheets, and expenses during productions in Crescat, which also simplifies post-production and invoicing. And in addition, the automated reports we can extract provide a good basis for decisions about the future. “
We at Crescat appreciate our radiantly fantastic collaboration with Kulturkirken Jakob, and we earnestly look forward to what the future has in store!
