The Rebound: Taking Place April 27th
In his own words founder, Nigel Korley-Simon describes The Rebound and the inspiration behind it:
On the surface, the event is my journey changing my life and finding my way back to my passion. The event is also about connecting, interacting and supporting creatives, appreciating a collective over an individual. The acts are all people that have been involved in this journey.
What inspired this event is although my story is sad, it is not unique the struggle is very real and not just for creatives. For me to stand alone and present myself, sure it would be a massive ego boost, but I don't see how that serves the bigger narrative of embracing our passions. Now if I stand with a group of diverse creatives at different stages of their careers, we are on less of a pedestal and more accessible, hopefully doing the same in the creative world terms of asking for advice and more.
The event takes place on the 27th of April 2019
