It’s been a few months of lockdown and with the country staying at home; we are now venturing out again, but this time into the unknown.
We look forward to connecting, eyes over masks, interacting with people and starting to get our new rhythms in place. I Love My Hood is a creative collective, using new-reality thinking to create new ways to employ and empower people through a series of business projects that celebrate South African ingenuity and creativity, style and flair, ubuntu and community. It includes staff, proprietors, artists, creatives, waiters, barmen, artisans and cooks who are all battling to find a “new norm”.
While we have all reacted in different ways to the COVID-19 pandemic COVID-19, we are all casting out into unchartered waters, to solve the challenges that our communities are facing, but what defines us is that I Love My Hood is doing so with honesty, responsibility, gratitude, and love.
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant we need to do things safely and with a new reverence of social distancing and sanitising and all these things are on the daily checklist that we take very seriously; we have reimagined what life will be like in the next months and put our ideas down in concrete to be able to laugh, love and live.
