Artist Maser calls on youth groups to get creative with project ideas and apply for the €100,000 Thank You Fund -  available for community projects that aim to inspire and support young people.

#ThankYouFund

Internationally-acclaimed street artist Maser has joined the rallying cry for the 2018 Coca-Cola Thank You Fund – calling for youth organisations to apply for one of many grants available.

Maser x The Clay Youth Project

Maser teamed up with young people from The Clay Youth Project in Crumlin, Dublin, to demonstrate the importance and impact of youth initiatives. Over a series of workshops, Maser and project members will create a bespoke artwork embodying the theme of the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund.

“Creativity, innovation and fresh ideas is something to be encouraged in young people in Ireland – there are ambitious people here who want to make things happen and they need support.”
– Maser, artist

Think outside the box

The Thank You Fund’s ultimate goal is to inspire and support young people. It aims to empower them to become confident leaders of the future. Maser is calling on all youth-oriented non-profit and community groups to think outside the box, get creative with project ideas and apply for funding before the application deadline of 13 July 2018.

Positive message

Well-known for his distinctive and striking designs, Maser embodies the theme of the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund, not only through his bright and positive messaging on the streets of Dublin and throughout Ireland, but also as a talented individual who has worked hard to achieve his goals. 

As someone who takes a non-traditional approach, Maser has carved his own path and is an example to young people across Ireland that there is more than one route to success.

‘Submit your ideas!’

Maser is delighted to get behind the initiative, commenting: “I'm very grateful to be involved and support the Coca-Cola Thank you Fund. It's a great initiative for the young people of Ireland. I will be working with a youth group from Crumlin, to collaborate on creating a mural based on their concepts and ideas.

“Creativity, innovation and fresh ideas is something to be encouraged in young people in Ireland – there are ambitious people here who want to make things happen and they need support.

“I’m asking all those people out there with great ideas to get online and apply for funding – there’s a load of money to give away so if you have a project you’re passionate about please submit your ideas!”

€100,000 to fund worthy projects

The €100,000 Coca-Cola Thank You Fund seeks to fund projects that inspire and support young people in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Applications are encouraged across a range of categories – the Fund aims to bridge the divide between education and the workplace, encourage diversity and inclusion, empower young people to become leaders of the future and welcome innovative approaches to sustainability.
