At www.Tholispani.Space we talk frequently about events. As a brand, we have three priorities: fashion, art, and events. We are obsessed with everything having to do with these three categories. However, we oftentimes have people ask us why we are so passionate about events. It’s easy for our readers to understand why we are so interested in modeling, fashion design, and artists- but what’s so cool about events? This article will aim to give you a better understanding of not only why community events are so important, but why you should be passionate about them, too.
Networking opportunity: Are you an aspiring singer? Artist? Fashion designer? If your community has an event based around your hobbies or profession, it can be an incredible networking opportunity. Whether you are looking to make friends with other industry professionals or get connections for job opportunities, community events are a great place to start.

Support local businesses: When an event is planned by and hosted in a community, chances are that local businesses are involved. In South Africa, small businesses are oftentimes overlooked.

More people tend to gravitate towards large stores and corporations, despite the fact that local businesses oftentimes have higher quality goods. There are so many reasons to support local businesses: they help fuel the local economy, the owners are from your own community, etc. By engaging in community events, you have the opportunity to learn about the local businesses in your area and support them financially.

Make friends: In 2019, we live in a world where it’s easier to meet people online than in real life. We could have friends from all over the country on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, but none in our own neighborhood. The truth is that we all need human connection. The best way to find friends is by attending community events. You’ll be surprised by just how many people in your community share similar interests and goals as you.
Celebrate your community: In this day and age, when most people “go out” or attend an event, they travel far to do so. There are certain “hot spots” around major cities in Durban that tend to attract locals. If you think about it, this is quite problematic. It implies that we need to go to “upper class” or “trendy” areas in order to have fun. The truth is that our communities could be just as hip and trendy if we both planned and attended local events! It’s time we showed pride in our communities and celebrated them for all they have given us.

No matter who you are or where you live, participating in community events can make you a better person

Community events help you bond with members of your community, open the doors for job opportunities, and help you make industry-specific connections. But what if your community rarely has events? Then step up and start planning some events yourself! Get a few members of your community together and share your vision. Whether you want to host a community talent show, hire a local band, or have a holiday party- get planning! It may seem overwhelming at first, but when you get a team together and start delegating responsibilities, it will be easier than you could have ever imagined. Plus, we are here to help! If you would like Tholispani.Space to be involved in your community event, don’t hesitate to reach out.

  1. Thanks for explaining that community events based around our hobby or profession are a great way to make friends and connections with other people in the industry. I’ve always been a supporter of the arts and have been looking for ways to support music in the community. I’m glad I read your article because now I’m exited to see what non-profit music events are happening in my area so I can meet others who are passionate about supporting the arts.
