The Agency is a creative entrepreneurship programme enabling young people, aged 15-25, to create social change projects based on the needs of their communities. The programme is based on Agência de Redes para Juventude, founded by Marcus Faustini in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2011.
From 2018 NTW National Theatre Wales and Fablab Belfast will join forces with lead partners Battersea Arts Centre, Contact, Manchester & People’s Palace Projects to roll out The Agency across the UK.
Join The Agency and turn your passion into a project. We’re looking for 15-25 year olds from Butetown, Riverside and Grangetown areas of Cardiff with ideas that need to happen.
We’ll give you the professional training, support, funding and advice you need to make your project benefit your local community. This could be anything from boxing workshops to a music festival.
You’ll pitch your idea to an expert panel to win £2000. You will make positive change, lead a unique business and gain the skills you need to achieve.
