HOW IT BEGAN? Rent Minds® was initiated early 2009. It first started as a Freelance Creative Collective– with the vision and mission of collaborating with creatives from various creative disciplines, as well as empowering and developing emerging creatives. Rent Minds® has evolved into a network dedicated to collaborating on projects, sharing networks and showcasing creativity from emerging African creatives and artistic talent in various disciplines.
OUR OBJECTIVES? •Establish a creative collaborative platform and network of inter-disciplinary thinking around the arts and creative industry on the African continent. •Showcase and highlight emerging and established creative and artistic talent, collectives, and projects related to the arts and creative industries. •Establish and showcase an emergent online collection of creativity and art from an African perspective. •Offer a platform on which the most diverse artists and creatives can express themselves independent of criticism. •Combat African rigidity and confinement of creative and artistic views. •Create an outlet for experimental creative and artistic talent.
WHAT AND HOW WE DO IT?
We collaborate, share work, network, represent, recommend, support and offer advice from various sources to creative and artistic talent on how to grow; from developing a portfolio to spotting opportunities. We also conduct a number of projects (commercial and non-commercial projects) to develop, train, expose and showcase African Creative and Artistic talent.
Many minds make a solid idea.
In the past great ideas were held onto and owned but we are moving into a trend where great ideas are shared and become brilliant. Sharing work encourages multifaceted, robust and market leading ideas that then drive dynamic action. It also kills ego and hedonism.It takes courage to share be brave and set ideas free.
Many hands make work light.
Assignments we have undertaken as a creative collaborative network include: Advertising Branding Content Development Research Public Relations Photography Digital/Online Media Design Art Direction Copywriting Editorial Publishing Multimedia
