Young Artist Agency is a first-of-its-kind programme in the local region with a mission to nurture young visual artists to take their first step toward professionalism and link them up to entrepreneurs as well as the creative industries.

    Apart from training programmes, it also provides a platform for the artists to increase their exposure in the art and cultural or commercial sectors, so as to meet the social demand for visual art professionals.

    In 2014, the Agency began to organised The Young Creative Entrepreneur (YCE), a business start-up, seed funding programme, aiming at encouraging the final year students and recent graduates of the Academy of Visual Arts, who have high entrepreneurial spirit and desire to take on challenges, to develop their innovative ideas in the fields of visual arts and creative industries into executable plans and self-sustainable projects.
