Digital + Culture = Creative Economy

Culture Shift Johannesburg about to kick off


It is a gorgeous morning here in Johannesburg; we’re in the midst of the final preparations for the second Culture Shift event in Johannesburg, put together by the Creative and Cultural Economy group of the British Council and facilitated by Social Innovation Camp and The Hub Johannesburg.

In just a few hours, 48 people from the creatuve and cultural sector, along with business brains and digital developers, will come together to try out new things. The Hub have also brought on an additional dozen or so mentors from a range of disciplines. The British Council have brought in a couple of experts as well.

We’re organising tables, chairs, food, and dealing with the thousand last minute crises. We’ve picked up some learning not only fromthe experience of the ccHub, but from last week’s Culture Shift event in Nigeria as well.

We’ll be blogging here, on Twitter, with the hashtag #CultureShift, and posting photos on Facebook. Do keep in touch.
