In terms of a watchlist for #vuseinspiredlive-it is all inspiring. Media whizz, Vanessa Rodgers Textbox Conceptual, who has been working on the campaign says that the series got her “creative juices flowing”- visually and conceptually. She was intrigued to what the artists, refer to as “the cube of inspiration”. She says: “Once logged onto Vuse Inspired Live, I was taken in by the energy and passion of internationally recognised choreographer and DJ Courtnaé Paul, and how accessible travel influencer Eddie Vilakasi makes it to break away on a budget. There’s also a master class from model and producer Kim Jayde – one of Forbes Africa’s 30 under 30 – who is on a mission to educate people about what she calls ‘the sneaker sub-culture’. Don’t miss this festival of inspiration on offer until end July – you will be completely blown away.” Click in – anytime – until July 31, 2021. Yes, there is no charge and there is no catch.
