Basha Uhuru Conference – Ecosystem Rising! 2021 is a hybrid conference of panels and engagements. It builds on existing strategies which locate and share how the Creative and Cultural Industry enables economic development. The day will unpack relevent case studies and data generated by the environment that contribute to growth, opportunities and livelihoods of creative entrepreneurs and the value chains they engage. The Conference will also showcase the opportunities that the Creative Uprising Hub has already generated at Constitution Hill and what it aims to build; to be at the forefront of creative Hubs in South Africa.
The day invites stakeholders from provincial and local government, business, enablers and creative organisations to be present and those whose interest it is to connect to and grow the ecosystem. The Ecosystem Rising! 2021 will host African and International contributors innovating on the continent and beyond, and is curated by Creative Economy expert, Levinia Jones.
