The Programmes section of the archive presents material from the gallery's 36-year history, organised by programme strand.

Visitors can access historic events programmes, residencies and commissioning strands such as Interim, 21st Century and Offsite, as well as collaborative programmes How to work together and Stop Play Record.

Interim was a series of event-based projects, running from 2008 until 2015, that took place in between exhibitions and commissioned for Chisenhale’s unique gallery space.

Established in 2009, 21st Century was an events-based programme, providing a platform for artists, writers and academics to connect with new audiences and develop dialogues around their practices.

Offsite featured collaborations, touring commissions and residencies taking place outside the gallery. Offsite was initiated in 2009 with A Sense of Place, Chisenhale Gallery's ground breaking collaborative project produced in partnership with three secondary schools in Tower Hamlets and engaging artists with specific interests in collectivism, collaboration and directly engaging with social and cultural contexts. More recently, Offsite focused on artist residencies: the Chisenhale Gallery Victoria Park Residency (2011-15) and the Chisenhale Gallery Create Residency (2014-17).

How to work together was a shared programme of contemporary art commissioning and research organised between 2014 and 2016 by Chisenhale Gallery, The Showroom and Studio Voltaire.

Stop Play Record was a three-year programme (2015-18) for young people aged between 16 - 24 years, interested in making experimental short films. The programme was part of a joint initiative between Arts Council England and Channel 4, which saw the Institute of Contemporary Arts lead a London Network in partnership with Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Chisenhale Gallery, DAZED, Kingston University and SPACE.
