The October edition of Arterial Network’s CatchUp will feature creative entrepreneurs in Kenyan Dance Industry.

However, with excellent training, determination, and an incredible work ethic, many have proven that a successful career in dance is possible.
In November the discussion forum will feature illustrators in Kenya’s Creative Industry.
