OUR STORY

Founded in 2013 by Anisa Morridadi

as a way to bring young people and institutions together because there was a growing divide, Beatfreeks started with an experiment.

What would happen if you give young people free and open space to talk about their ideas, thoughts & feelings? Will anyone come? Will they have anything interesting to say? Will anyone care?

That space became Poetry Jam and has powered the community ever since on the first Thursday of the month. It’s an open mic platform for stories, poems, raps, monologues, rants and debate. It’s how we build our connection with young people and youth culture. It’s also where we got our first taste for data not just being numbers on a spreadsheet.

We offer insight and youth engagement to companies across the UK to create the ‘Institutions of the Future’: more relevant organisations that stay ahead of the curve by embracing diverse ideas & talent now.

From connecting companies with young people to consult on existing ideas, to running think-ins that co-create new ones, our vital community of young creatives work with us to improve business and shape culture.
