Sjaka Septembir
Trained clown

All his work, all he does, all he is flows out of his heart and his heart is a clown. His poetry, acting and directing all have clowning at its core. Clowning is not about hiding behind a mask. True clowning is about being open and very very vulnerable.



Roxanne Boyes
A dream should not be a dream, it should be a plan.

After realising how short life could be, Roxanne made a bucket list at age 23 and in one year she made enough money and explored some of the most extreme places on earth, fulfilling my dream of being an adventurer. I want to inspire people to LIVE more & show them how easy it can be!

Kenan Petersen

Shoni Khangala
Intertwined with Disability

Shoni Khangala inspires people to craft powerful, inspiring narratives for themselves, irrespective of any adversity that forms the basis of their story; and to bounce back from adversity and take full charge of their destination. It is also a call for a change on our perceptions of ‘ideal’ role models.
