A few years back, Converse SA started driving creative footwear and some of my favourite ranges include The Simpsons and street art-inspired designs.
This week, they announced the local leg of a globally successful creative drive, the CONS Project Joburg. This community projects was designed to inspire the next generation of creative spirits through music, art, style and skate.
The project seeks to unearth urban creativity within the community using the space as a creative hub for a series of talks, workshops and exhibitions; all aimed at inspiring young people, giving them opportunities to learn whilst fueling their creative passions.
The workshops will offer hands-on lessons for local youth ranging from 16 and above at no cost.
DJ Duo, Mary Jane, who will put together a Mixing Workshop and entertaining the crowds, feel inspired by the project. “Converse and more specifically CONS feel like a natural extension of who we are. They are about modern street culture and stand out for enabling creativity.”
CONS Project Joburg is set to take place at the corner of Melle and Jorissen Street in Braamfontein from 29 May to 1 June 2014.
