Conversations On Creativity

a talk, especially an informal one, between two or more people, in which news and ideas are exchanged.


With over 100 conversations with creatives from around the world, different backgrounds we have been chatting to creatives we admire on their journeys, ideas, advice & thoughts on different topics and we hope this inspire your journey.



We believe in conversations and community; our talk series encourages honest conversation. Curated by our team we invite creatives to share their journeys in a 3 way fireside chat style conversation (speaker, host and audience) and panel discussions featuring 3/4 creatives discussing topics suggested by creatives. The talks are every month (ish) and are open to public and hosted in central spaces we partner with.



We imagined an annual gathering, a few days of creatives from continent + diaspora in one space in conversation with ourselves on what we are doing, need & want for our continent and we contribute to that; hence the Young African Creative Conference once a year.
