Zanemvula Creative Hub

What does your company do?

This is a company that aims to serve people emotionally. It aims to give space for people to express themselves through writing and poetry. This provision is made through hosting events in which are themed at times. This creative hub also enforces community and collaboration with other female authors and writers in South Africa. The objectives of this company are also rooted in taboo topics within society such as grief, allowing those who experience it do have space to express and process it. We go about daily life thinking we are okay until we break and realise that there is so much that we bury. Imagine what kind of society we would be if we aim to speak and unpack the things are that are difficult?

Hosting successful events and publishing a book that delves in grief work. There are other writing projects that were done for well-renownced artists in the entertainment industry.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Funding my small business and the difficulty in that finding funding.
