Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

100 Agents of Change

The 100 Agents of Change​​​​​​​ project is an exciting new art and activism project connecting some of the most revolutionary innovative artists and change makers from around the world with young people from marginalised communities in the UK, to share their experiences, skills and knowledge.

We live in an increasingly polarised world, but there are beacons of hope – young people becoming agents of change, and using technology and innovative methods to form international solidarities and use creativity to educate against and fight injustice.

DASH are seeking 10 Agents of Change
All applications are welcome.​​​​​​​ To find out more and how to apply read on and visit the Blog page.

The 100 Agents of Change Residency ​​​​​​​

The residency will be held virtually in November 2021, and will allow artists from our network around the world to share their skills and knowledge of how to use what we have around us - creativity and our communities - to make the change we want to see in the world. The residency will take place over four weeks online, with a programme co-designed and shaped by the young people.

We will support the young people who have taken part in the residency to take those new skills and knowledge back into their communities across the country and use them to promote social cohesion through art and activism. 10 young people from the group will be selected for seed funding to further support the development of their community projects.

The residency content will be driven by In Place of War’s changemaker network around the world as well as guided by you.

Programming will be thematic by week and will span talks, workshops, events, showcases, exhibitions, gigs and more, covering a wide range of topics and opportunities relating to creative activism.

Art and entrepreneurship in times of crisis/Women rising - a conversation around art and feminism /Black role models through the ages/A Guide
