somewhereto_ re:store is a project that’s relaunching in a creative community centre in North Glasgow. There will be a launch party on Saturday 1 February to showcase a new programme of workshops, classes and events as well as the refit of The Imaginarium space. somewhereto_ re:store provides spaces for 16-25 year olds to use in any way they want within the creative arts and enterprise.

Following on from the success of last summer’s nationwide launch of re:store, somewhereto_ are pleased to announce plans are underway to continue the resurgence of activity in the disused spaces of North Glasgow.

somewhereto_ have been busy curating activities to support continued regional efforts and encourage local and social enterprise amongst the young, creative and ambitious. somewhereto_ in association with icecream architecture and Hot Tap Media, launched re:store in Glasgow as part of a nationwide campaign funded by a £7m injection from The Big Lottery Fund, to reclaim the high street and offer young entrepreneurial people the opportunity to realise their ideas in creative pop up spaces all over the country.


somewhereto_ Project Managers Joe Grehan and Catherine Smith are currently working with young people in partnership with Depot Arts and the Concrete Garden, whom set up The Imaginarium as a joint project to encourage community arts project that serve the Possilpark area, regularly organising weekly folk music sessions, craft, cookery and garden workshops, street-art workshops, exhibitions, swap shop meets and song-writing classes throughout the year.

Kerrigan Renniegade

Kerrigan Renniegade (24) has been involved with the re:store project since we started in December 2013. She’s an illustrator and a street artist and is working on a number of art projects with The Imaginarium. She’s been running a small business customising shoes and commisioned art prints (see image above).

Kerrigan will be helping with Depot Art’s new weekly portfolio drop in sessions starting and is working on a photography/portrait project of 10 local hip hop artists to be exhibited within The Imaginarium. She has this to say about the project:

“I think we need more places like The Imaginarium”. The people here and the work they do I inspiring and has encouraged me as a young artist to express myself and made me realise that I can make things happen.”

Now in the process of inviting a fresh new wave of 16-25 year olds in North Glasgow, somewhereto_ are asking like minded people to come down and check out the free event at The Imaginarium to unleash their imagination within the creative space, and take the opportunity to talk with somewhereto_ representatives whilst proactively seeking out new spaces for potential ventures. The newly refurbished building opens its doors this February with a new programme of workshops, events and activities to showcase the diverse talent of local young people.

somewhereto_ provides mentoring and access to free spaces for 16 – 25 year olds, allowing them the flexibility and inspiration to do the things they love…no opportunity is too big or too small! From 3 February, re:store managers are available every Monday from 10:00am – 2:00pm to welcome young people into their space and chat through ideas.
