The Business Of Youth & Creativity
An active network of young African creatives on the continent and diaspora working together to build the continent we envision that works as a multidisciplinary agency.
Our network consists of architects, producers, filmmakers, artists, product designers, photographers, graphic designers, lecturers, bloggers, writers, authors, curators, street artists, fine artists, musicians, tv & radio hosts,entrepreneurs, copywriters, art directors, fashion designers, thinkers, doers, freelancers, developers, strategists etc.
We work with brands/companies/institutions that are looking for innovative ways to better partner up with the youth. As as a multidisciplinary agency we have a played many different roles to fit the projects we do, we use action research as our to get insights and develop products that meet the needs of the client. We have worked with the likes of Fujifilm, Nordex Energy Solutions, J&B Whisky, Blacknation, British Council Connect ZA, SABS Design Institute, Cape Town Partnership, Grants Whisky.
We not only work with brands but are very focused on developing our own products and services in response to the needs of youth and the general community.
We also host our event series to gather and share knowledge from the greater creative community, we have recently launched our own annual NESTLINGS AWARDS to celebrate young African creatives, we have launched a multidisciplinary creative space in the heart of Cape Town that functions as a coffee shop, workspace, gallery and space for young people to test ideas.
Within our network we offer creative and business support, workspaces for members, share resources to better support each other as creatives.
