A major highlight of working with somewhereto_ is that nearly every week we get to welcome in talented, outspoken, driven people who carry out work experience with us at our London office. We learn just as much from them as they do from us and we give them a taste of what’s it’s like to run a programme that offers 16-25 year olds access to free spaces in their communities to pursue creative and enterprising endeavours.
Last week, we heard from three future somewhereto_ users what spaces they would like to you (once they turn 16!). There are some excellent recommendations to take into account when you look for your next space.
First up Jesse.
Hello, my name is Jesse Babudoh and I am 14 years old. I would go with the RichMix Main Room. I like the the attractive layout and the splashes of colour around the space. It also has fantastic staging equipment, which makes it a very versatile space that can host a variety of events from fashion shows to film festivals.
Next up Olivia.
My name is Olivia Wickings, I am 14. I am still not certain what I would like to do as a career, but I do have a few ideas about the types of work I am interested in. I have always been a big music fan and I also enjoy writing so I am interested in music journalism.
In the future I could use a space like Cato Academy Studios in Wandsworth, London, to explore music as well as offering a space for me to sit down and write. I think this platform will be very useful for me and lots of other young people in the future.
Lastly we heard from Taher
My name is Taher and I’m 14. I’m enjoying learning about somewhereto_ as they have taught me many life skills. Now I know where to get a free space in the future, which has helped me in the journey of deciding what I want to do in life.
The space I would use from somewhereto_ would be ‘The Curve Auditorium’ as it has a large space, looks visually pleasing and presentations can be seen clearly.
If any of these spaces take your fancy or you just have some questions about somewhereto_, register and get in touch.
