Change Agent

The YEA project has been carefully structured to find new ways to integrating entrepreneurship training into youth services in the field of creative, performing and digital arts. Rather than viewing entrepreneurship just as a means to self-employment, YEA is built on the premise that entrepreneurship is a transversal skill of relevance to all young people because of the numerous ways it can be employed to further their goals.

As a Change Agent (Local/Regional Authority, Arts NGO, YOUTH Worker Representative Body, Enterprise Support Org. Etc.) the YEA project can provide you with:

  • An innovative new approach we call “Youth Entrepreneurship through Arts REGIONAL ALLIANCES”. These bring together key youth, enterprise, and social policy stakeholders to explore best practice in integrating entrepreneurship education into creative arts youth work, devising individual and collective commitments to action in a YEA ACTION PLAN;
  • A set of resources, techniques and experiences combined into the “Youth Entrepreneurship through Arts TOOLKIT” to facilitate the creation of the first four YEA alliances and encourage the creation of further Alliances across Europe;
  • A route to developing entrepreneurial mindset and skills in young people in your region, manifested in the young people developing a proposal for a cultural project or creative initiative which is innovative, sustainable and ready to attract funding.
