Our 30 young leaders are…

30under30

Agenda proudly initiated its new program 30 under 30, which commenced on March 10th to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Communicating the Arts conference. We aim to avail the upcoming generation of adolescent professionals to stand at the forefront of the cultural scene and thrive.

Consequently, we are thrilled to announce the first promotion of the 30 Under 30 program. Youth from all over the world, from Colombia to Tanzania, Italia, and beyond have been selected to participate in Agenda’s yearly professional development program.

With varied yet complimentary backgrounds and experiences, they are outlining the emerging generation of cultural leaders. Their bold and sometimes conflicting visions of cultural leadership finds a common ground in serving the community and fostering diversity to imagine unforeseen possibilities.

Stay connected to Agenda’s social media to get to know them better and to follow their research on the best practices in the field regarding Climate Change.

Discover their fascinating findings from the Climate Change Webinar coming this September.
