Taking place in the Host City of Cape Town, from 24 – 26 August 2022 at the CTICC, FAME Week Africa is home to African creatives and is set to transform three days of peer engagement and networking into lasting business. Meetings, screenings and content sessions will bring a plethora of opportunities to an industry ready for new prospects.


“FAME Week Africa provides a platform for African creatives to fast-track their careers through conversations, networking and learning. Our partnership with iKasi will highlight the incredible work that they are doing with the youth in the film, television and multimedia space by not only showcasing their student’s work but also providing their creative content creators with the opportunity to connect, be inspired and be part of important conversations. We look forward to growing this partnership,” says Martin Hiller, Marketing, Content + Creative Director of FAME Week Africa, built by RX Africa.

The art of storytelling gives a powerful voice to a generation. Today, moving pictures have taken on a whole new digital dimension, which spans across industries. Through various partnerships as well as the iKasi employment stimulus Incubator, businesses can reach and have a positive impact on young creatives in rural areas in South Africa while meeting BBEEE scorecard obligations. Currently, 25 students, from the West Coast, Cape Town, and Worcester are in the digital media content creator incubator. Other cohorts are in the Eastern Cape and the Garden Route

For students, iKasi offers training, online support, mentorship and an incubator programme that delivers content to broadcasters. By also sponsoring devices for graduates who complete their training successfully, you will be empowering them to continue in the iKasi Voices content creation pipeline currently broadcasting on Cape Town TV and DSTV Channel 263.

“iKasi is proud to represent creative youth from rural communities at FAME Week Africa. This global platform gives us the opportunity to motivate for more support and long-term commitment from industry to reduce unemployment and to bring much-needed access to our youth to participate in a growing creative economy”, explains Lika Berning, Founding Director: iKasi Creative Media.

During FAME Week Africa, iKasi will be presenting a masterclass on using Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) to get the most out of your creative team. NLP is about advanced communication, with ourselves and others, and offers an immense variety of applications from sales, marketing and leadership to communication with others, both professionally and socially.

iKasi alumni, Chad Louw will be presenting a talk on the value of creative media skills to small-town and rural youth. Louw will share his story about how the creative economy changed his life and how you can be part of growing the sector and in the process be a change maker.

“Chad felt compelled to tell this story as it was the unfortunate reality for many unemployed youth in his community. When Chad couldn’t afford to complete his diploma in media he signed up for the iKasi Creative skills programme where he graduated in the Top 5 of his class. Since then he followed his passion of playing an active role in community building and he was appointed Mayor of Oudsthoorn last year,” says Hiller.
