Years back, before what we know today as The Creative Tribe, a small group of creatives lead by Anthony J Thompson kicked off a once-a-month meetup called Creative Meetups, these legendary meetups laid the foundation for a lot of the creative community development happening in the Jinja region to-date. Month after month, enthusiastic creatives from all walks of life met for the sole purpose of networking, knowledge-sharing, great laughs, and of course—snacks. While the energy and desire to continue was evident, back the, the resources to fund such a venture were limited and we were forced to take a hiatus a year and a half in.
As a designer, it pained me when I had to face the reality that we had to temporarily bring the meet-ups to a halt, but I knew I’d never stop carrying out the mission of engaging and doing whatever I can to advance the community. I also was just waiting for the next opportunity to resume the meet-ups.
Says Anthony J Thompson
Fast forward to 2020 and that day has been set. On Tuesday 15th September, The Creative Tribe in partnership with The Innovation Village: Jinja will officially launch (or should we say resume?) a monthly design meetup as a part of the Creative Meetups which currently includes separate meetups for visual artists and poets. This Creative Meetup will take place from 5-7 pm at The Innovation Village Jinja. All designers –whether beginner or expert— across all disciplines (graphic/web, fashion, product, etc), are welcome to join as we turn this page in the history books of our community.
We have some amazing ideas of our own but we also want to hear from the creative community about where we see ourselves and how to get there
The entrance is free to all creatives. Please remember to wear a mask
