These workshops were great for the young people. They left with really practical tools they could use to create their own digital content. Particularly valuable for our project as they now have the confidence and knowledge to produce high quality digital material for their social enterprises.” – Natalie Watson, The Agency Southampton, Energise Me

We are delighted to have worked with Our Version Media. This has formed a valuable part of our outreach work around our upcoming Christmas production of Peter Pan! As it’s a youth production, Our Version Media put us in touch with local black youth organisations so we could deliver workshops within community settings, to encourage more young people to get involved and audition. With Our Version Media’s support, we have been able to form meaningful relationships with these community groups and are committed to continuing our relationship with them as part of our wider work to engage new audiences and support our local community.” – Katie Muncer, Community Programme Leader, MAST Mayflower Studios

It has been an absolute honour and privilege to work with Veronica. Her passion and knowledge, about the people living in the local community, has enabled me to be able to further my community engagement work for Solent NHS Trust. Veronica has been instrumental in connecting me with invaluable community partners in the city. This has been extremely beneficial as it has greatly helped Solent with our work and ambitions to reach and engage with diverse members of the community.” – Ophelia Matthias, Communications and Engagement Officer, Solent NHS Trust

Veronica has put us in touch with amazing talent across the community supporting our recruitment drive for diversity in the outdoor industry. Couldn’t have done it without her.” – Mel, Founder, GoTread

It has been great to work with Our Version Media to help us diversify our audiences and reach local communities who would not usually consider visiting the theatre.
