Getting people doing that thing that they love is a key mantra for us here at Startacus, so anything that helps to spread that mindset is pretty close to our hearts, which is why we love the philosophy of Somewhereto_.
Somewhereto_ is a movement to liberate underused, disused and empty spaces in the UK and get everyone thinking creatively about their communities. In simple terms, this means that they promote and offer space that can be used for free.
In an ideal world these spaces could be used by anyone, however, like many funded projects (and this was funded by Legacy Trust UK,) said space is available to applicants aged 16-25 years old. Aiming to inspire creativity within this age group is certainly not an issue for us however, and you should definitely take a look if you are aged 16-25 and have a project in mind.
With space allocated for most creative disciplines, it would be worth taking a look to see what space is available close to where you live if you are looking for somewhere to practice, perform and showcase your creativity. You may be surprised just what is available!
Remember to bear in mind that like any funded project, it probably won’t go on forever - and since this project has been running for a while now, I would get looking and knocking on doors if the Somewhereto_ project floats your creative boat.
