The festival will take place in various venues and spaces around Braamfontein from 10-12 September. There will be invitation-only creative industry events and free open events plus a live music party that will close the festival. The featured creatives will be announced shortly.

British Council Connect ZA Head of Arts, Tom Porter, says, "We are keen to see greater connections and networks arise from UK creatives and their contemporaries in Africa and Connect ZA Creative Futures is part of that ambition. We're excited to share the new creative energy of Johannesburg with this group of innovators."

Connect ZA Creative Futures will also connect with the creatives leading up to the gathering with a series of Twitterviews and Instagram takeovers hosted @Connect_ZA @LiveMagSA #creativefutures.
