Nataal is a global media brand celebrating contemporary African fashion, visual arts, music, travel and society
Nataal launches its debut print edition in May 2018. The large format, 336-page magazine is a biannual showcase for inspiring artists whose work is shaping global African creativity today. We hope the publication becomes a tangible and much-needed space for positive dialogue and diverse storytelling.
Our exclusive online content profiles the brightest designers, storytellers, tastemakers and cultural revolutionaries, both on and off the continent. From in depth interviews with artists to unique visual essays and fashion shoots, Nataal celebrates innovation in all its guises.
EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS
Nataal collaborates globally to curate talks, exhibitions and events and our partners have included AKAA in Paris, Southbank Centre in London and M-Bassy in Hamburg. We have also been a media partner for Afropunk Fest, Design Indaba and ARTX Lagos.
In May 2016 we co-hosted our first New African Photography exhibition with Red Hook Labs in Brooklyn, which has gone on to become an annual show. It features exciting emerging artists and comprises a launch party, roundtable talk, 10-day show and print sales coinciding with the 1-54 and Frieze art fairs.
Our consultancy arm can help support brands with reports detailing trends in African markets as well as insights into target audiences across the continent and beyond. We also offer creative services to develop and produce campaigns and events that talk to the international, contemporary African community.
Services include: creative strategy and consultancy; trend reports; content creation including film, print and stills; visual direction; event curation and production; full image production services; casting; social media planning and activation.
