Educating and encouraging today’s generation to become tomorrow’s leaders in their chosen field
Cre8ing Vision was established in 2010 by Kwame Kwaten, Andrea Euell and Nicola Charles. The concept is an evolution of Kwame Kwaten’s brainchild The Urban Music Seminar which ran from 98’-2005. This event connected aspiring young artists to industry professionals offering them first-hand knowledge about the Music Industry. Due to its popularity and rarity, the idea was revisited and expanded to create ‘Cre8ing Vision’, a movement whose ethos is to motivate, educate and inspire, offering young people programmes and opportunities in both the music and sport industry.
