We are DurbanKnights, a Leaderless Disposable Collective focused on activating and harnessing our creative potential on direct action projects around the COP17 Circus.
This last grey Saturday, The Collective Space hosted a DurbanKnights Info Jam and creativity/brainstorming session. What emerged from this is a core of creatives looking to collaborate and co-create strategic creative actions. This is not an exclusive core, just the bunch of people who are willing to move, make a noise and do what they can and should. If that sounds like you, then know that you are already in!
The next meeting is Tuesday, again at The Collective. DurbanKnights start gathering at 6pm for The ‘RoundTable’
The RoundTable is a system where we gather to create and share our creative and strategic projects.
