Centenary Young Fellows Launch: Projects Pitched

Fellowship news

  • Community engagement
  • Fellowship

The RSA welcomed over 100 new Fellows as part of the new Centenary Young Fellows scheme on Wednesday 24 September. The evening buzzed with a plethora of interesting, enthusiastic individuals, as new projects were pitched and many new connections made. Chief Executive Matthew Taylor opened the event with his presentation on the Power to Create, followed by staff introductions to the variety of engagement opportunities on offer, and project success stories from some of our existing Fellows.

Please find below, a list of our project pitchers and their contact details. If you would like to find out more about their project or to get involved in some way, please get in touch with them directly.
