Ongoing Rehearsal Space Saga in Birkirkara: Aidan Somers Provides Update


Amidst the ongoing saga surrounding the availability of rehearsal spaces in Birkirkara, Aidan Somers has provided an update via his social media pages, shedding light on the efforts being made to resolve this pressing issue.


Somers stated, “We have been in discussion with government representatives and have put forward a proposal in aid of supporting this issue of creative spaces. We are not at liberty to discuss who specifically at this stage, though we are hopeful after having several meetings this week from both the public and private sectors.”


The statement emphasizes the importance of community involvement in driving change. Somers urged, “As a community, we need to keep pushing in order to make our voices heard and address the current situation. With enough members demanding change, we can provide solutions to the issues that have affected our industry for over a decade.”


To bolster the campaign, Somers outlined several ways the public can contribute:


  • Share the Cause: Inform those affected by the shortage of creative spaces.

  • Engage Organizations: Encourage organizations interested in joining a creative hub to participate.

  • Submit Testimonials: Send a 1-minute video testimonial explaining your need for creative space.

  • Offer Skills: Contribute creative skills to the campaign to aid in spreading the message.

  • Donate: Support the fundraiser through the provided Indiegogo link: Indiegogo Fundraiser.


As an incentive, all early contributors will be automatically entered into a waiting list of 100 members, granting them priority access to the new spaces starting in September.


This initiative represents a significant step forward in addressing the long-standing issue of limited rehearsal and creative spaces in Birkirkara. The community's active participation is seen as vital to ensuring that sustainable solutions are implemented, securing the future of creative endeavors in the area.


For more updates and to contribute to the cause, follow Aidan Somers on social media and stay tuned for further announcements.
