Connecting Creatives!

We are a youth development hub called E3 (Educate. Empower. Enlighten.) and currently run a program with the German Technical Cooperation (GIZ) whereby we strengthen and mentor local creative youth. Over the last 3 months, we ran a series of workshops and boot camps (from personal development and workplace readiness to entrepreneurship etc). As part of our GIZ collaboration, we were able to connect with British Creative Industry expert Mr David Parrish (www.davidparrish.com) and he will work with our hub/our youth and wider Mbombela Culture and Creative Industry stakeholders in the week of 28 Oct – 1 Nov!

For the big finale of his stay, he will give a workshop at DA LOOSE MONGOOSE where he will address 30 invited guests to a talk on Culture and Creative Industry Trends and how to unlock the creative industry (including strengthening tourism and urban regeneration, etc). The workshop times are 10- 12 am. In the afternoon, Mr Parrish will open a local youth showcase event also held at DA LOOSE MONGOOSE. We will have live music, performances, pop up markets (local art and designs). The event is from 2pm – 6pm and entry is free. We’d love to see you there!
