- Chipo Mapondera (Fashion PR Officer at Styling Concepts and Freelance Fashion & Lifestyle Writer)
- Henrike Grohs (Goethe Institute Culture & Education)
- Facilitated by Live Mag SA founder Gavin Weale
Participants will then have the opportunity to break into smaller working groups to network and continue the discussion.
There will only be 20 places available each month. If you are interested in attending the first session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a short motivation on why you would like to participate or submit you details on www.livemag.co.za.
The sessions will be hosted monthly over the next six months and will feature cultural practitioners, artists and professionals from the creative, media and arts industries.
The sessions are a platform for up-and-coming creatives to engage with established industry professionals and arts practitioners, receive creative and career advice as well as build relationships with these professionals.
