WHY

others choose to work with us

“I wanted to congratulate you on an excellent event. As Lara Foot so rightfully put it ‘This is the first arts conference I have attended which has left me feeling excited and positive.’ If that's all it did (which of course it isn't) then you have already shifted the landscape.”


Michelle Constant, CEO: Business and Arts South Africa

WHO

we are

Fiona Gordon
A small town girl,
driven by the energy and opportunity of the city,
Fiona grew up in the Eastern Cape, has had a
lifelong love affair with Cape Town, and now calls Joburg home. She is supplementing years of experience in the field by pursuing a Masters in Cultural Policy and Management through the University of the Witwatersrand, on a
Scholarship from the SA Cultural Observatory. She has a particular interest in capacity-building through mentorship, and the value of diversity in teams.
Yusrah Bardien
Yusrah Bardien is a behind-the-scenes
arts specialist with keen interests in audiences, the arts economy and
international relations. She regularly presents on national and international
platforms on the arts in South Africa,
and audience development; and is an increasingly vocal advocate for the rights
of women in the workplace. She has recently begun (formally) studying the law.

As project leads, we also rely on a range of trusted associates and suppliers where required, according to the needs of the work. 

HOW

can we help you?

Much of our work is done online and on the phone, but we do love to chat and make mind maps or #planitwithpostits over good coffee.  We are based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Because of the long-term nature of strategic and communications work, we work on a retainer-basis with our clients, but do engage on hourly, daily, or project rates for more contained projects. Contact us to chat through the specifics of your needs and context. 

Our services range from practical, communications and operational support, to collaborative consultation on audience development, strategic planning and implementation.
We work together to establish what your needs are, and how they can best be met.

  • If you have a project plan with scope of work, objectives and timelines that you'd like us to deliver on; send it through to hq for a quote. 

  • Otherwise, send us an outline of what you're up to, and how you think you'd like us to help you (including a sense of your timelines), and we'll meet for a chat and figure it out together... this is where we do our best work
