This page has been inspired by the creative industries of Grahamstown. As an urban geographer, I became intrigued by the branding of Grahamstown as a ‘Creative City’. As a result, I have found a wonderful array of creative people who are producing locally inspired arts, crafts, and artisanal goods on a small scale. Many of these goods have a national and international market. They are testament to both global and glocal forces.
This page will showcase these creative talents and industries. I hope to provide exposure to small businesses and foster a broader market for their products. In addition, I hope to illustrate and promote the creativity that forms the vitality, spirit and dynamism of Grahamstown.
If you are a local creative genius and you would like to be included, please contact me.
