Giving back: The RoundHouse.
We are working with The Roundhouse, one of London’s most exciting art venues.
From modest Victorian beginnings – beginning life in 1846 as a steam-engine repair shed – to legendary cultural venue, the Roundhouse has an enviable heritage. The Grade II* listed building is now home to a bold and exciting programme of live music, theatre, dance, circus, installations and new media.
Young people are at the heart of everything they do. They’re on thier board and help plan and perform at their events.
They offer a year-round schedule of creative projects for 11–25 year olds in 24 state-of-the-art studios, where facilities include TV, radio and music production, media suites and rehearsal rooms for music and performance.
It’s the interaction between artists on stage and 11–25s that makes the Roundhouse unique. Young people have interviewed Paul McCartney for Roundhouse Radio, filmed a documentary on NoFit State circus, and worked with Apple to deliver live streaming of events.
The Roundhouse is a charity and they can’t survive on ticket sales alone. Income generated from private/corporate hire and from generous individuals, trusts, corporate sponsors and public funders helps them to raise the £3m they need each year towards their artistic programme and work with young people.
We are delighted to be helping them achieve their targets.http://www.someoneinlondon.com/category/projects/giving-back-the-roundhouse-projects
