Goal summary

To train 50 at-risk youth in creative entrepreneurship and develop their creative talents and skills, enabling them to make their own livelihood.

Project summary

They come from a social background without much creative stimulation, and have had few chances in life to go beyond the perceived boundaries of their social and economic situation.


Participants discover and develop design and entrepreneurial skills through inspirational workshops, conceptual workshops, design workshops, co-creation workshops, brand identity workshops, and marketing and publicity workshops.
