It’s that time of the year again, time to get those creative juices flowing with Hello Ambassador! Hello Ambassador is an annual Creative Festival based in Gauteng. Now in its third year, #HA2015 will take place on 4 + 5 September at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown, JHB, and will consist of a 2-day conference featuring talks by industry experts from a variety of creative disciplines. We witnessed the awesomeness last year, and it blew our friggin minds right through the ceiling! It’s a must for any person involved in the creative industry, or if you want to break into it. Even if you’re in dire need of creative fuel, check it out! Let’s get kreatief!

Hello Ambassador includes a creativity and innovation expo, providing opportunities for entrepreneurs and local initiatives to showcase their work, while the workshops, VIP events, design competition and awards serve to promote and award creative excellence.

The open-mic street fest encourages emerging musicians, beat boxers, break-dancers and graffiti artists to show off their talents, and the after party will feature some of SA’s top musicians and DJ’s.

#HA2015 will feature 25 speakers, panelists and workshop hosts from a variety of creative disciplines. From well-known CEOs to creative pioneers, experts, innovators and local entrepreneurs, we’ll bring you the people who’ve seen it all, and are willing to share their vision with all of us attending this great event.

The Street Fest will be happening during lunch on Saturday 5 September and will focus on showcasing our local street culture. An open mic stage will feature emerging musicians, beatboxers, hip-hop, pantsula and breakdancers, skaters and graffiti artists.

The After Party will be held at Bassline, Newtown on Saturday 5 September from 19:00.
