I am the regional coordinator for somewhereto_ in Wales. somewhereto_ is all about helping young people between 16-25 find space to do things they love doing.
A little more about me:
Originally from New Zealand, I have been living in Cardiff for the last three years and I love it! I am a producer for a local media company and somewhereto_ is my latest project.
Projects I’m working on:
media4creative in Cardiff has recently become the Regional Coordinator for Wales for the somewhereto_ initiative. Funded by Legacy Trust UK, somewhereto_ helps young people find space they need to do the things they have a passion for.
Please get in touch if you need help finding a space. It could be somewhere to reherse, write or perform. Whatever it maybe I am here to help you find the right space to do what you love.
Usually at this point I'd introduce you to a few people or groups you might be interested in joining but I think you probably cross all our main groups - Actors, Creatives, etc. You can see a list of all the Groups and join as many as you like to post announcements and network with people.
A really good way to tell the whole Community about your project would be to write a Blog Post (click Add on the top right of the page). I think somewhereto_ would be of interest to a large number of Community members.
We also have a Group of people called National Theatre Wales TEAM who we have made friends with on our travels around Wales. They are often people interested in theatre, working in creative industries and wanting to participate and create so would probably be very interested in somewhereto_. Devinda De Silva (NTW's TEAM Coordinator) looks after this group so I would suggest adding him as a friend too.
As always the best thing to do on the Community is dive in and have a look around, but do give me a shout if you have any questions.
