In 2012 Manifesto Jamaica partnered with the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) and the European Union (EU) to educate, expose and empower at-risk youth in various inner-city communities through art and culture. Young people from the low income Kingston communities of August Town, Nannyville, Trench Town and Seaview Gardens participated in the Youth Empowerment through Art and Culture project, which included a weekend of arts workshops, Minifestos and Arts Management training.
