ABOUT

Imiloa Collective is a social creative platform that builds and enriches the skillsets of creatives. Since 2012 we have encouraged diversity and the experimentation of arts to help showcase and support creatives, women entrepreneurs , those from marginalized communities and disadvantaged backgrounds. 

Over the years we have supported the growth and development  of women and creative entrepreneurs across Africa through the delivery of open training , educational programs, consultancies and workshops from industry experts expanding their market reach or accessing business development services.

In working towards our mission towards inclusive culture and social inclusion, we aim to build a global network of women and creative entrepreneurs, promoting their talent and expertise as well as encouraging community-led integration and cross-cultural understanding.
