It’s no secret that Cape Town is a not only a creative hub, but also a buzzing economy that of which births and adopts musicians, actors as well as sculptors, creative directors to the best agencies in this city and the list is endless; also cemented with hosting the world with the World Design Capital in 2014 and the globally acclaimed week of creative buzz with the Design Indaba. Another giant in African (and global) creativity that has imprinted itself is Creative Nestlings, and what they have done with The Nest.
“ForYoung African Creatives, The NEST is the only network and membership programme on the continent that connects and supports young Africans on their creative journeys , exactly how they want to be supported. The benefits are designed to enable easier connecting and sharing opportunities through our online and physical spaces.” says the network.
