Please could you just run this major project, support that fantastic young person, broker this perfect partnership and, erm, change the world... by end of play...? Is making a difference something youʼd like to make part of your to-do list?
Livity is a socially responsible youth communications agency that works with young people to produce co-created campaigns for the causes and brands we believe in. We share our offices with young people every day: a methodology that fuels our campaigns and helps 100 young people into work or education each year.
In 2010, Livity and Channel 4 bid successfully together to the Legacy Trust UK to deliver the incredible UK-wide Olympic Legacy project, somewhereto.
somewhereto is a key project of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. At its heart, itʼs about enabling 16-25 year olds across the UK to find spaces to do the things that they love, by working with them to secure access to spaces they need but donʼt have.
With a focus on the arts, culture and sports, somewhereto is committed to empowering young people to unlock spaces to grow their passions with a real sense of ownership… whatever their thing and wherever they want to do it.

Project Aims If you know a young person with a passion, somewhereto is all about unlocking space in which they can come alive. somewhereto thinks about space in its broadest sense: it could be temporary access to a local cinema for a young person to showcase their film…or negotiating street access for a street football tournament…or access to office space that is unused at night for a band to rehearse…or negotiating access to an area of a city for skaters…or a street corner for busking…or an online space to set up an online music mag… the opportunities are endless!
somewhereto: inspires young people to look for space inspires spaceowners to open up spaces involves young people in inspiring events and somewheretos supports young people to solve their space needs creates a sense of ownership of somewhereto in young people UK wide encourages everyone to view space differently ensures that somewhereto is enduring and sustainable beyond the 2012 games
Project Structure 1. Digital Platform At the heart of somewhereto will be a website, designed to serve as a hub for young people to access local and national somewhereto spaces, locate their nearest Regional Producer and to share and connect with stories and other young people nationwide. The website is also the hub for spaceowners to explore the benefits of their participation in the project, alleviate practical and legal concerns and provide a space brokering service via a Central Support Manager or a Regional Producer.
2. Central Support somewhereto will have a core support team who are central to the project. At the somewhereto digital hub all stakeholders will be able to access networks, support and guidance to ensure that their relationship with somewhereto is well-informed, motivational and enduring.
3. Regional Producers: Regional reach with local expertise Participants will benefit from the local knowledge of a somewhereto Regional Producer. Young people will be mentored and empowered at a local level to identify spaces for themselves. Regional Producers will facilitate this as well as sourcing new spaces regionally and providing an outreach service for somewhereto.
As the project builds and moves towards its legacy phase, Regional Producers will be encouraged to develop the leadership skills of engaged participants and promote ownership of the project as these individuals assume the role of Youth Ambassadors.
