Space Spotlight: Rich Mix

East London’s Rich Mix is a multi-disciplinary arts venue that describes themselves ‘a cultural space for everyone in the heart of East London.’

62,000 feet, 5 floors, 3 cinema screens, and 5 flexible event and performance spaces, add up to a truly impressive creative space. But it’s not just the space that’s impressive. Rich Mix are a charity committed to nurturing young artistic talent in Tower Hamlets and beyond, and this is why Rich Mix remain firm friends with somewhereto_.

Nikki Smith, Rich Mix’s Private Hires Coordinator, explains what makes Rich Mix such a unique space to hire. ‘We have a variety of different spaces and can accommodate a lot of different requests and ideas. We’re very flexible in our approach and we always try to make things work to different budgets and scales of production people want to work to.’ And there are a vast array of events that Rich Mix can cater for, from private screenings to conferences, small drinks receptions to product launches, and everything in between. Rich Mix has it all and will help you to create your event, the way you want it.

Much like somewhereto_ every time someone hires a space with Rich Mix it goes back into supporting young artists and creatives (so that’s double good karma when you book Rich Mix through somewhereto_) ‘We’re very passionate about helping people realise what they want to be. ‘There’s nothing better then being able to say to a young person ‘you’ve got a great idea’ and actually help them turn it into a reality. There are so many interesting young people who just need a bit of assistance to be able to take off with an idea. We are creating the next generation of creative industry professionals.’

We see every day how young people with a great idea simply need a little help to flourish and turn that idea into a true success. Reece Thompson is an artist and writer who has just published his first book, and he’s a great example of what can be achieved with a creative idea, inbuilt drive and a bit of space to realise his ambitions provided by somewhereto_.

Book this creative, versatile space with a true and genuine purpose, and feel good in the knowledge that you’ve helped young creatives on their journey to success. Plus there’s 25% off all bookings for August!
