A network growing everyday!
An initiative of PUMA.Creative, Creative Africa Network is both a live and virtual platform with global reach, connecting the creative world within and outside of Africa, giving visibility to the talents working in architecture, dance, design, fashion, film, fine art, literature, music, new media, performing arts and photography.

The programs of PUMA.Safe (focusing on environmental and social issues) and PUMA.Creative (supporting artists and creative organizations) reflect PUMA’s commitment to environmental and social responsibility and define the partnerships and initiatives PUMA will support and pursue.
