Singapore – National Youth Council (NYC), a statutory board under the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth and a co-ordinating body by the government for youth affairs in Singapore, has appointed marketing agency TEAM LEWIS, to be its agency partner for social and digital content creation, management, and optimisation for Somerset Belt, a key project under the SG Youth Action Plan.
The Somerset Belt – a stretch that extends from *SCAPE to the junction of Somerset and Killiney roads – aims to be an entrepreneurial, creative, and incubation space for youths. It is designed to be a precinct where they can have a direct hand in contributing ideas on programming and infrastructural changes; working with one another, the communities, businesses, and the Government.
Joseph Prakash, assistant director of the Somerset Belt Office, shared that to inspire youths from all walks of life to work with us to shape Somerset Belt, it is important that the agency they work with not only has digital capabilities at its core, but also understands the identity they are building to stay connected with youths.
“TEAM LEWIS has demonstrated creative and bold thinking in its storytelling to help youths connect with one another, while celebrating their collective ideas, interests, and aspirations,” said Prakash.
Meanwhile, Mark Tay, head of content for Singapore at TEAM LEWIS, commented that they are excited to partner with National Youth Council and look forward to demonstrating how incorporating youth-centric sentiments in the heart of storytelling can help band a community of diverse audiences together.
“This is an incredible opportunity for us to build a distinct identity for Somerset Belt while positioning the space as a place for youths to appreciate, participate and create programmes,” said Tay.
