Day one: Imbizo Expo (Launch) 6pm – 9pm

The first day of the Imbizo will be a brief outline of what we plan to achieve with such an event. We will introduce the program for the next day’s forums and discussions.

Most importantly, it is a chance for all stakeholders (business sector, government and the Hip Hop community) to be acquainted. This will be done over an informal atmosphere where issues that rise will be taken up formally the next day. We will also be displaying and selling Durban’s Hip Hop products across all the elements of Hip Hop.

Day two: Forums 12pm to 6pm
: Closing Event 8pm to 3am

The second day of the Imbizo will seek to actually tackle the issues at hand, having given the stakeholders a chance to get acquainted with each other.
A selection of industry players will give various addresses on pertinent issues and hold workshops throughout the day. The topics that will be covered will include the following:

1. The music industry (guests: SARRAL, radio station representatives)
2. Funding (guests: Department of Arts and Culture, Public Companies)
3. Skill Development and the Small, Micro and Medium Enterprise (guest: Umsobomvu)
