Here’s a great example of how we’re helping young people to progress and build on the things they love to do.
Louie came to somewhereto_ looking for spaces where he could raise his profile as a young rapper and entertainer. He was given the chance, featured in the video above, to perform a track at the grand opening of the Juice Festival festival at The Sage Gateshead.
Sara also came to somewhereto_ hoping to gain experience of speaking at large events and increase her public speaking and entertainment skills.
They have both now been given the opportunity to compère a huge event happening tonight, 27th October, at the Sage Gateshead, with over 150 people expected to attend. The event is part of The Power Tour, an event taking place at multiple venues across the country featuring performances from young bands.
Sara and Louie will be given a couple of hours before the event to chat to the bands and then have free reign to decide how they run the night. This is a huge opportunity for our two young people and one that will hopefully lead to even more public speaking and entertainment work in future.
If you want to increase your skills and gain experience like Louie and Sara get in touch now at www.somewhereto.com/spacesearch and tell us what you would love the space to do.
Louie wanted somewhereto_ showcase his talents within rap and dj’ing. North East regional coordinators Neil and Michele had been working with the Juice Festival to look into how somewhereto_ can be part of the festival and an opportunity arose for a young rapper to be part of the grand opening event.
Louie was chosen and seized upon the opportunity to work with young musicians from the Sage Gateshead’s Voltage Volunteers; who produced the music to Louie’s rap which acted as the keynote opening speech for the festival. Louie and the musicians then performed this track at the Sage Gateshead at the grand opening on Tuesday 18th October.
