Chaos = Creativity
How creative professionals are responding to the pandemic
What is the CREATIVE ECONOMY WEEK?
Our journey started in 2019 as a series of events where artists, entrepreneurs and professionals all engage in an exchange of insight, showcasing the ways in which creativity plays an active role in different lines of work across industries, beyond the arts.
With a simple mission of helping creative people do creative things, we create pathways towards industry opportunities by organising competitions, design sprints, art exhibitions, workshops and many other creative experiences.
Working as a non-profit team, we are always on the lookout for new ideas and initiatives to support the rise of the creative community in Brunei.
We work with people who do amazing things for their communities.
From universities to NGO's, gig-workers to corporate entities, our community is passionate and their impact is wide-reaching. Read more about their work:
