“It is our dream to uplift the Creative people in the townships and turn them into entrepreneurs. It is our dream and mission to create mini workshops around the existing space, forming a Hub, offering the creative people in the community an opportunity to be exposed to the tourists and get business training and development and grow together.” – Founder of the Creative Hub, Peppi Stanford.
Peppi adds that they like to tread lightly, by recycling where possible, preserving nature and promoting good environmental practices.
The Creative Hub is truly an inspiring place where talent meets creativity and a passion for creating.
The future plan, which would require funding or corporate donations, is to source and convert shipping containers, into secure workshops. They would be placed on the terrace above the existing Creative Hub building
The containers would be extremely visible to passing trade on the R43 national road. The idea is to paint these containers the bright colors of the SA national flag and other ethnic designs to attract attention. Participants would be mentored to create their own opportunities and to grow their business. The end goal would be to create an online shop for them; exposing them to international markets.
Always remember that the “future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”. We can achieve this together, so for more information or to help The Creative Hub, simply head over to their website. Peppi can be contacted on the below details.
