Calling all Creatives of Colour! Come together at the Zanana Social and enjoy an insightful panel talk and friendly networking event.

Open to all who are active in the Scottish creative industries, and identify as People of Colour (POC) +/or Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME).

Organised by LAPEYRE & LAPEYRE, we've created Zanana Social to amplify the amazing work of Scottish Creatives of Colour. LAPEYRE & LAPEYRE are Scottish/Mauritian siblings who are unleashing transcultural creative projects that aim to inspire and provoke.

By bringing Creatives of Colour together across disciplines: we hope to inspire you with engaging stories, empower you and support your ambitions.

Don't worry this is a casual, friendly event. Whether you come with a friend or by yourself, you will be welcome.
