In Future List 2023

Livity’s In Future List supports the next generation of creatives and change-makers who are using their platforms, creativity and talent to predict and shape a better future for generations to come.

The programme focuses on providing industry access, mentorship, networking and workshops whilst providing guidance as well as resources over the ten-month period.

Now in its third year, Livity has announced its expansion of the program to offer support to even more applicants compared to previous years.

This year’s list includes almost 40 new names, including strategists, filmmakers and activists from across the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa and America.

This year’s cohort includes amazing talents such as: Vanessa Maria, a DJ and broadcaster for Foundation FM and host for Resident Advisor; Ronita Anwoor-Gordon, who took part in the Terms & Conditions Film School, a partnership between YouTube Originals and Livity, which helped to create and fund her documentary, ‘The Finer Details’.

Also included is Matty Hall, co-founder of Sairo, a creative agency crafting immersive stories using AR, VR & Metaverse.

Alex Goat, CEO at Livity, said: “We’re very excited to welcome our new intake of next gen talent to this year’s In Future List.

“The 2023 cohort are each driven by an innovative vision and a desire to drive a positive impact through the work they do. We’re excited to collaborate with them and support them as they develop their careers.”

Vanessa Maria, from the new 2023 IFL cohort said: “Being featured on the Livity In Future List would be an incredible opportunity for me to connect with other exceptional young people who are making a positive impact in their fields.

“I believe that the programme’s events and mentoring opportunities could help me expand my network, gain new insights, and learn from industry experts.”

Previous In Future List alumni include the likes of Alvin Owusu-Fordwuo, co-founder of Tag Agency, an agency dedicated to transforming young lives through community, culture and storytelling; Stanley Anigbogu, an award-winning creative technologist based in Nigeria, who co-founded LightEd, a company that creates renewable, sustainable and affordable energy for communities in Nigeria; and Jeng Au, an Art Director for Amazon.
