CreativeMornings JHB 2.0 – Jemma Kahn

CreativeMornings JHB 2.0



If you weren’t at the first CreativeMornings JHB talk last month, hosted by Nicework, you missed the start of something great. Mark Stopforth gave a fascinating talk about convergence in the media, and how channel bias is obscuring the importance of meaningful brand storytelling (which you can now watch here). But, you can remedy this: the next CreativeMornings Johannesburg talk is coming up on Friday this week.


Once again, attendance is free, but you need to register here to reserve a seat.


Jemma Kahn is a theatre maker, and is this month’s speaker.

A bit about Jemma:

Her performance credits include the lead in Jane Taylor’s ‘After Cardenio’, commissioned by Harvard scholar Stephen Greenblatt and her acclaimed kamishibai production ‘The Epicene Butcher’ which premiered on the National Arts Festival Fringe in 2012. Jemma was the primary illustrator and principal storyteller in ‘The Epicene Butcher’, which received an Ovation at the National Arts Festival Grahamstown 2012, Critics’ Choice and Best of International Tour at Amsterdam Fringe 2012 and performed at Edinburgh Festival 2013 as part of Assembly’s South African Season. Design credits include Greg Homann’s South African premiere of Ariel Dorfman’s ‘Delirium’ for which Jemma received a Naledi nomination for Best Costume, and Helen Iskander’s ‘Planet B’. She was one of The Mail & Guardian’s Top 200 Young South Africans 2013 and lives and works in Johannesburg.
