“The Creator Lab Live series is a dedicated programme aimed at supporting creators as they build their communities, create compelling content and monetise their craft and passion - and we’re thrilled to have bought this programme to South Africa for the first time. We know that the country has an exciting and thriving creator ecosystem and as we work toward shaping the future of digital content and experiences, we know that creators here will have a vital role to play.”


Creator Lab and Creator Lab Live offer established creatives the opportunity to share their expertise with up-and-coming talent, covering topics such as crafting unique Instagram Reels, audience growth strategies, community nurturing, and setting healthy boundaries.
