ZIMBABWE’S Sunshine City, Harare is set to be the host city for young creatives, social entrepreneurs and hub managers from Mauritius, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, Malawi, Botswana and Mozambique from the 4th or March to the 7th of March 2020.
The summit dubbed, SOCreative Hubs Summit 2020 stands for Social, Creative and Hubs identifying with the sector members it will gather together. As Creative and Social sectors of the global economy are growing and remaining resilient through global economic downturns, these industries are a key opportunity for investment, research and documentation among the bulging youth population in the region. The summit therefore aims to provide a platform for youth entrepreneurs in this space to deliberate, discuss and dialogue on defining an ecosystem culture within these economies.
The second of its kind, with the inaugural summit held in Johannesburg in 2019, it is no mean feat to have Harare as host city for this second edition. Stimulus Africa, has been selected by the summit conveners to coordinate the programme of events over the four days. Stimulus Africa is an innovation hub whose mandate is to positively disrupt the manner in which Zimbabwe and Africa approach entrepreneurship
The Summit was initiated by The British Council Southern Africa Arts Program and Dice (A British Council Program in South Africa) in partnership with Zimbabwe German Society, Goethe Zentrum. The platform was inspired through the work British Council is doing to support creatives and social entrepreneurs. British Council and DICE take an ecosystems approach to nurturing economic inclusion with a focus on women and girls, young people, the disabled people and other excluded groups.
