our projects

narrative on how to tell that story

●  Find brands and clients that align with our value system

for someone to really own this workflow

About The Participation Ageny

The Participation Agency is an award winning, quickly growing experiential and creative agency based in NYC, and with projects globally.

The PA is a unique agency because we do client specific work, but we also create and launch experiential IP, built specifically to partner with brands. That means there are a lot of assets to sell, and we’re looking for someone who can flex in both of these areas – selling in projects to new clients, and selling in partnership deals of varying ranges to new and existing brand partners.

The sky is the limit here, and we are looking for someone who sees the exponential growth potential here. We’ve been listed in Inc Fastest Growing Companies every year since we launched, and we have no intention of slowing down.
