The first of its kind, Amapiano Africa Summit is set to take place in exactly a month, just in time for Youth Month.
Curated and conceptualized by Thulani Maduse, well known in the entertainment and events industry as “Thulani Way”, under the With Or Without You company and its culturally influential movement, the aim is to infiltrate and educate creatives.
The much anticipated 2-day summit will be placing the spotlight on the undeniable, ever-growing and proudly South African Amapiano music genre.
The summit will take place at the well-known Zone 6 Venue in Soweto, on dates Friday, June 23rd and Saturday, June 24th.
Showcasing the theme Revolutionization of Amapiano, the implemented workshops will focus on translating the relevance and value of music and art. As a contributing factor to South African enrichment and youth empowerment, discussions and research around the crucial role that Amapiano plays will be at the centre of the summit’s message.
Music will be further studied, not only placing a spotlight on it but the artists and their craft as well. The aim is to equip artists with the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure that they benefit from their passion and ideas.
Motivation behind the summit lies in assisting mostly up and coming artists and their wellbeing, especially from townships. Many aspects of the industry will also be covered, such as Brand Management, PR and Legal Rights.
Unifying African creatives, promoting Amapiano on a larger scale and echoing the role that music plays in socio-economic development is also at the crux of the summit.
“We’re proud to be bringing a unique and engaging summit that speaks to South African artists that would like to broaden their music and entertainment industry knowledge, in order to enrich their careers. We’re also bringing various stakeholders from the private and public sectors to further educate the artists and creatives that will be in attendance. The spirit of networking is also imperative”, expresses With Or With You founder, Thulani Maduse.
The 2-day summit will be hosted from 9AM until 4PM on each day, with a DJ line-up that will serve as entertainment following the workshops.
Tickets are available for purchase on Webtickets at R100 for each day.
