AGORAKickstart your your creative idea

AGORA Agora is a program for young people who have a good idea with a focus the cultural and creative industries that they want to make a reality!


Sometimes you just need that extra push to take the next step. Therefore STPLN together with four other organisations started AGORA. With a year’s long mentorship program alongside four international training courses in Sweden, UK, Romania and Greece and we give kreative ideas a kickstart!  

The partner organizations have a vast range of experiences in the creative industries. So participants will get loads of knowledge about business and project development, funding opportunities, production and events management, contemporary dance and arts, as well as interactive project design and social innovation. And more... Right now we have four Swedish participants that have startat their journey towards the creative industry.




Right now 13 people are kickstarting creative ideas in Sweden, Romania, Greece and UK.


CakeFace Workshops (UK)

CakeFace Workshops is a creative project delivering ten soft skills sessions to young people aged 16-24 in Islington, London to help inspire and engage local communities to aim higher and reach goals.


Look Up (UK)

Look Up is a app for supporting the local in your city. It will highlight local businesses, charities and landmarks that anyone living or visiting simply needs to see! A key focus of Look Up is that it is ran by local young people in each community. Pioneered with Yellow House, an arts youth organisation in Liverpool

This project aims to provide an alternative platform for learning mathematics. Using influence from artistic practices and Realistic Mathematics Education, a package of workshops and resources will be developed to convey mathematical concepts. These workshops will be delivered in non-educational, community spaces and will be open to all ages. Image: attached (credit: Elmi Ali)

Mosaic Community Project (GR)

People of different sex, age, cultural backround, abilities and disabilities can work together making a mosaic mural. They can leave their personal imprint while being part of the bigger image. A diverse group of people is reflected on the symbol of unity between different elements such as a mosaic piece always is.


Katerina (GR)

My project aims at creating a dance platform that will encourage independent dancers and choreographers to conduct research and exhibit their work in different frameworks and audiences in collaboration with different fields of art such as visual arts and music.

Sävligheten (SWE)

Sävligheten is a publishing house and a record label based in Malmö, Sweden. Our aim is to combine two fields of art that seldom mix: music and poetry. By offering a selection of carefully handpicked poets and musicians and presenting it together in the form of a zine and casette, we believe a conceptual feeling will emerge. Although the pieces weren't created for each other, something happens when they are combined.


(S)well (SWE)

My illness and I are celebrating our 10-year anniversary. During my 29th year of life there is a risk that I will go into a deep depression where I don't want to live anymore, despite loving life. By using the various artistic expressions and tools I have picked up during my 10 years outside of the branch I am exploring my illness and investigating the perfect way in which to be ill.


AGORA is a partnership between STPLN (SWE), SwIdeas (SWE), In Place of War(UK), Fotoessa IKE (GR) och Fabricia de Pensule (ROU) and is cofinanced by Erasmus+.
