Rupinder Garcha is our new bright young contributor from London, currently studying a BA Art History at the University of Nottingham. We met Rupinder at our W-Project talk at Tate Britain in 2012 and since then she has carried out a work experience placement with us and now updates our blog with new and exciting content including interviews with new and up and coming female artists. Aside from this, Rupinder has a background in photography and is involved with a number of youth forums across galleries in London. We are really happy to have her on board, she’s one to watch.

@somewhereto_ has teamed up with @rundemcrew to offer up to 20 young people the chance to create their own fanzine.
Kicking off on 12 September, they will be holding weekly evening sessions (for five weeks) at the London home of somewhereto_ re:store in Elephant and Castle. The session will start with a quick run to a famous London landmark then be followed by creative workshop looking at a different theme each week, such as creativity, sport and entrepreneurialism. At the end of the five weeks all the content from the creative workshops will be used to create an exciting fanzine that will be distributed all over south London later this year.
So if you are a young person living in London, are 18-25, and want to showcase your creative and entrepreneurial ideas and skills, sign up here http://bit.ly/1drFlLQ by TODAY Monday 9 September!
