  • Seriously. Game of Thrones season - exciting much.

    So why not enjoy four freerunners from Northern Ireland clambering all over the place - namely THE castle in Game of Thrones. 

    We make space availbale for 16-25 year olds to do what they love. No space too small, no space too…um… old and crumbly.

    Here’s some sneaky peeks from the behind the scenes from when we filmed our very own parody

    Spotlight News returns!

    Hello everyone! Yara’s back with your weekly update of everything somewhereto_!

    Here’s your dose of weekly somewhereto_ news! Yara’s been busy this week, checking out skateboarding in the ghost city of Ordes (and trying it herself!), Jake Gaba’s dance across China and some pretty awesome freerunning!

    Remember to subscribe and check back on Friday for an amazing video featuring ballet dancing in a rather unusual location…

    Madness.

    Not that band, but this one- this merry band of urban ninjas -a cool troop of guys called Flite. Watch this insane video of them unleashing their gravity defying stunts in their local area, just casually leaping off buildings, bouncing of walls and doing seamless flips through their town square… all in the name of showing off!

    Yes, you guessed it, these guys are entries for somewhereto_ show off, our competition offering you chance to perform at the Olympic Park and also fly out to Rio de Janeiro (home of the 2016 Games) with Adam Deacon to star  in your very own show off film. All you have to do is submit a 60 sec clip of you doing your thing, anything!

    The closing date is looming ever near- midnight on the 18th July, so show us how you show off for your chance to win!

    As part of the Last Day of Summer Festival, freerunners from Accrington had a space to show off their skills and promote somewhereto_. The space was provided by Spearfish, an urban arts organisation based in Manchester. 

    somewhereto_ is a nationwide project to help 16-25 year olds find the space they need to do the things they love. The project is delivered by youth engagement agency Livity in media partnership with Channel 4, and funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to help build a lasting cultural and sporting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games across the UK.

    In October 2011 Britain’s most famous front door was unlocked for 10 young people as part of somewhereto_.

    The talented group included freerunners Callum Harris, Jack Curtis, Chima Akenzua and Karol Michta, who were all looking for somewhereto_ practice parkour, and were given free rein to use Number 10 Downing Street as a space to showcase their freerunning skills. Watch the video to how they used the space and what they thought of this once in a lifetime opportunity!

    somewhereto_ Number 10 Downing Street takeover video featured at the Conservative Party Conference

    The video from yesterday’s Conservative Party Conference (UK only), watch from 0:39 - 0:42 to see Rubix Collective spoken word poets Deanna Roger and Sean Mahoney introduce our amazing video.

    There are some great reaction shots while the video plays too. It’s so good to see people with the power and resources to help us open even more spaces reacting so positively to our young people pursuing what they love and making incredible use of the space.

    Ok so now we need a video in the white house so we can compete with those damn Brits.

    “We have a duty; A duty of care to share our spare space that we live in, and don’t always use - and I have a dream that at some point soon, this duty we have becomes realised.

    We’re in a crisis that’s crippled our creatives and our pens, mics, paintbrushes. The crisis is this – we have nowhere to go. Nowhere for our creative seeds to be sown.

    You’ve built buildings to become derelict and let usable space go to waste, so we say, put innovative energy into creating what we already have.

    Think it through – ask not what space can do for you, but what you can do for our space. Because we need, space.

    But we also need to leave our sofas. Need to rise above the games consoles and abandon our telephones

    It’s said that we’re lazy so prove them wrong. Show that we are not a nation of couch potatoes, but instead, use passion and ability to set space free from the constraints of emptiness.

    And when we’ve put down our mobiles and switched off TVs, we’ll remind you that we need our own spaces, so we can explore.

    So, tell us,

    Will you open your door?”

    Hella cool, but the writeup made me think that we where talking proper occupation style takeover, not an advert.

    Thanks, glad you like the vid. Sorry for the write up confusion though, definitely not an occupation style take over. We just talked Downing Street into opening their doors to our young people because that’s what we do!
