There’s a creative community in Pretoria that you might want to become part of…
As you might have read in our print magazine this month, Adriaan Venner Scheepers is an entrepreneur who loves photos and video and being one of the few vloggers in Pretoria, he likes to share the honest truths and creative sides of Pretoria. He has become an influencer and thought leader in that sense and recently collaborated with a couple of creatives to create a local community called Capital Creators which has taken the city by storm.
Capital Creators is a community driven by creativity and the best part of it is that it is focused on Pretoria. This community of creatives uses Pretoria as its backdrop and canvas, and they have a way of portraying this lovely city to the world through whatever they do. Whether it is a photographer capturing street styles and locals or whether it is an entrepreneur promoting a new merchandise brand – they all form part of a group of creatives with one thing in common: The Jacaranda City.
Capital Creators host regular hangout events where you can meet up with this creative community. You’ll often see images of their hangouts on Instagram and Facebook – beautiful images of places you didn’t even know existed in Pretoria. They also try to make the venues for their hangouts special – ideally it would be places you can’t normally go to like Loftus Versfeld, which was one of their recent hangout spots.
