Soul Safari, an event series created by and for a global network of creative entrepreneurs will be coming to Melbourne on the 2nd and 3rd of June, 2017 at The Establishment Studios.
Founder and “Connector-In-Chief” Vanessa Holden – Executive Design Director at New York creative strategy and business transformation agency Sub Rosa; and formerly Senior Vice President and Creative Director of west elm, Editor-In-Chief of Martha Stewart Living and Martha Stewart Weddings, and Creative Director of Real Simple and Donna Hay Magazine – started the network with the mission of mobilising creatives and igniting innovative, collaborative work.
“I started Soul Safari to drive radical transformation by creating a space for people to come together in an active, creative environment that focuses on purposeful, sustainable and ethical practices,” Holden said.
“It’s been a real thrill to see our first two events in Sydney and New York bring together a tribe of the world’s leading artists, makers and creative minds and propel them forward in new projects and collaborations. It’s been humbling and inspiring to shape an empowering space for attendees to discover the next opportunity and fuel their journey toward their dreams, especially at this moment of global instability and uncertainty.”
“Fearless creativity and deep collaboration toward shared goals will propel us forward to new futures together – the dynamism of the Australian creative community is constantly evolving. I can’t wait to get back to Australia to bring to life our next series of events, sharing the stories of an even more diverse group of leading creative spirits and established and emerging business leaders across a broad swath of industries.”
