Hello Ambassador is an annual Creative Festival based in Gauteng. Now in it’s fourth year, this 3-day event will take place on 1 – 3 September 2016 at Sci-Bono and 1 Fox Precinct, Johannesburg. It will consist of conference talks, workshops, a creative expo, street festival and after party.
The festival programme on Thursday and Friday focusses on talks, workshops and panel discussions by industry experts from a variety of creative disciplines. We have some incredible speakers on the line-up this year, such as Alistair King, DJ Black Coffee, Maps Maponyane, Pieter Goiris (from Belgium), Anton Kannemeyer, Yulu Ishii, Vuyiswa Mutshekwane and many others.
The Creative Expo will run during the day on Thursday and Friday at Sci-Bono, and provides opportunities for entrepreneurs and local initiatives to showcase their work. The #HA2016 Awards serve to promote and award creative excellence.
The open-mic Street Festival will take place on Saturday 3 September from10:00 – 16:00 at the 1 Fox Market, and features emerging musicians, beatboxers, rappers, breakdancers and graffiti artists.
In the spirit of collaboration, the #HA2016 After Party will bring an epic close to the festival with the Red Bull Music Academy Weekender Johannesburg on 3 September, 17:00 – 02:00, at 1Fox and The Good Luck Bar. It will feature international and local acts such as Fat Freddy’s Drop, A.K.A, Patoranking, Jullian Gomes, and more. #RBMAJozi.
