A new programme launched in Stoke-on-Trent is offering micro grants and online support to help young people bring their ideas to life.

Run by arts organisation Urban Wildreness, Tomorrowland Lab is an initiative which aims to give a voice to 14 to 24-year-olds living in the city and surrounding areas. This includes Staffordshire Moorlands and Newcastle-under-Lyme. 

Each successful project will receive a £200 micro-grant and an eight-week programme of online training and support. The projects will be showcased in public later in the year.

Laurel Gallagher, co-director of Urban Wilderness, said: “We’re a year into the pandemic, and we’re all living with uncertainty. Tomorrowland Lab is an opportunity for five young people to work with us to explore some of their passions, and possibly come up with solutions for a brighter future for us all.”
