Our research into the next generation of young people in SSA and the UK tells us that people want:

• Capital to start-up creative businesses of their own

• Business skills training, and peer to peer mentorship opportunities

• Spaces to talk, share concerns, and support each other

We respond to this by offering individuals and organizations training in business and digital skills, networking events, access to new markets, connections to resources and finance opportunities through the Creative Enterprise Programme (CEP) and the Creative Hustle.


The Creative Hustle is a seminar style event that offers young people aged 18 - 35 the opportunity to gain awareness of the breadth of artistic and non-artistic livelihood opportunities available across creative sector value chains.

The Creative Enterprise Programme delivered in partnership with NESTA is a three-day capacity-building workshop that supports entrepreneurs to establish and grow their businesses.

The workshop is a learn-by-doing approach - participants complete the workshop exercises with their business in focus. There are interactive exercises, peer-led activities, guest speakers and time for reflection, all curated for a positive learning environment.
