Fryshuset launches Powerhouse

By on September 8, 2018

Young wants to change, but it’s hard to know how or where to start. On 12 September, Fryshuset Powerhouse launches an incubator for young glow and talent. In Powerhouse, young people are able to develop, test and engage in exactly what they are passionate about. They also get support and help to start their own initiatives and projects.

Powerhouse brings together young people with activities, inspirators, companies and supervisors, and also offers free courses and tools. We have an idea bank and our own brand new CHATBOT that helps young people find what suits them. All that is done can be boiled down to three main focus areas: inspire, connect, act. Boten was created by Apegroup with the support of SIDA.

“All young people are talented. No matter what you performed earlier, in other contexts; school, basketball, among friends. They want to act and change, they just do not know how or where to start. For those who want to act as facilitators, it’s less about inspiring commitment and more about activating an already burning driving force, and we hope this will be the starting point for more young people to realize their ideas and try to run their own projects,” says Amelie Sandström, communications manager for Fryshuset in Stockholm.

Through Powerhouse, young people engage in the UN’s Global Objectives, by encouraging and developing their inner drive and passion. The purpose of the Powerhouse is that every young person, regardless of background and condition, should feel able to contribute to an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable society.

Together with seven young guiding stars, Lovette Jallow, Black Vogue, Fryshuset Powerhouse will open on September 12th, 18.00-20.00 at Fryshuset in Hammarby Sjöstad. There will be contests, goodiebags, opportunity to chat with our chatbot, meet our partners and inspectors. But above all – meet other young people who also want to learn, develop and create change.

Powerhouse is supported by UNIQLO, which will participate, among other things, through mentorship, career guidance and creative challenges. UNIQLO will be in place during the launch on September 12th.
