Hello Ambassador is an annual Creative Festival based in Gauteng. Now in its third year, #HA2015 will take place on 4 + 5 September at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown, JHB, and will consist of a 2-day conference featuring talks by industry experts from a variety of creative disciplines.

The Festival also includes a creativity and innovation expo, providing opportunities for entrepreneurs and local initiatives to showcase their work, while the workshops, VIP events, design competition and awards serve to promote and award creative excellence.

The open-mic street fest encourages emerging musicians, beat boxers, break dancers and graffiti artists to show off their talents, and the after party will feature some of SA's top musicians and DJ's.

Our Goals


With Hello Ambassador we aim to create a platform where emerging artists, creative entrepreneurs and industry experts can meet and network, promoting local SA talent both nationally and internationally.


We also aim to inspire and educate young artists and students and create awareness of the opportunities that exist within the creative industry.


We are constantly looking to improve on open and accessible models to empower and educate artists, helping them to create a sustainable income using their creative talents.
