DUBAI, June 1st, 2020 – On 5th – 7th June, 2020 Thrive International (ThriveIN) will host its very first digital showcase titled “Cre8 48”. Creatives from all over the world will come together to showcase their talent, knowledge and inspiration.
The idea stemmed from having various artists come together to sing one song. However, it quickly turned into a weekend event to help share light in a place where darkness, uncertainty and sadness fill the world. “It hurts me to see what’s going on, there was doubt if we should continue the event in light of what is happening across the United States and with the black community, but I felt we need this, we need to not feel numb or tone-deaf about the situation but show love through the arts, and we have decided to add charities that are supporting the movement and fight for justice,” stated Ethan Auguste, Founder – Thrive International.
Ethan is a T&T-born cultural ambassador and international event organiser based in Bali, Indonesia. He began Thrive in 2013 while living in Dubai, with the goal of supporting, showcasing, developing and inspiring creatives.
