30 Jan The NEST | A Membership Programme for Young African Creatives
Along with a beta version of their new website this week, Creative Nestlings has launched The NEST: a premium membership programme for young African creatives.
Noting that, for the past three years, they’ve worked closely with young creatives across SA and the rest of the continent, Creative Nestlings co-founder Dillion Phiri outlines the aim of the new site and the membership programme as resourceful platforms that will support development in the industry.
Creative Nestlings’ new website has been in the making for quite some time now and, intended to function as a “field guide” to the African continent, it speaks of their core mission. A signigicant part of this is The NEST, which takes the form of a paid-for membership programme for African creatives between the ages of 18-30. Being part of this online network puts members in touch with other young creatives, provides them with opportunities to collaborate, and it makes business mentorships, perks and discounts from partners available. Members of The NEST are also eligible to participate in the Inagural Nestlings Awards and will be granted access to select events, publications as well as co-working spaces in Johannesburg and Cape Town later in 2015. Exciting stuff! We’ll be keeping a close eye on this and we can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
