Somewhere to create...in Aberystwyth


San Francisco 1967? No, Northgate Street, Aberystwyth last night where a vacant shop has been refurbished to stage events for people aged 16-25. 

The initiative, at what was previously Andy's Records (prior to it moving up the road) and more recently an ink cartridge shop, is part of the Somewhereto_re:store campaign aimed at providing access for young people to otherwise empty retail space. In Wales this is being led by a partnership between Aberystwyth's own Arad Goch and Promo Cymru, based in Cardiff

4 Northgate Street will be available until January and Somewhereto_re:store (I think I've got the punctuation right) will be staging a variety of events there as well as providing space, support and advice to others with creative or entrepreneurial ideas. If you've got ideas or want to help people who have, pop in for a chat or e-mail restoreaberystwyth@live.com
