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

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

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