To have an impact in society, exposure beyond groupthink, coupled with an intense work ethic is truly one of the keys to “staying power”. The Creative- Sector’s value chain and its innovative ways have become more evident when it comes to SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Visual Collaborative a festival platform and its publishing catalog titled “Polaris” is here for it. As 2019 gently dissolves, “Supernova” the latest title of the journal, featuring 23 game-changers puts an exclamation on real impact. This readership information from data, shows the catalog leaping into the future, forming a unique and all too relevant substratum for diverse disciplines converged to solve present-day problems.

It is not Ade Olufeko’s public lectures or his calm endurance, neither his well-documented and significant contributions to the arts and technology on the African continent. It is his world-class attitude. His effortless work to the public supported by a team of volunteers have put together a masterpiece of interviews. Releasing a collective of 4 volumes highlighting an impressive roster of over 100 trailblazing change-makers – from activists to artists, politicians to climate change campaigners – who are all breaking barriers across the globe.

The cast of the most recent volume “Supernova”, includes Bisila Bokoko, global speaker, businesswoman and philanthropist; William Coupon, American photographer, Xárene Eskandar, researcher and designer; Nse Ikpe-Etim, award-winning Nollywood actress; Nere Teriba, the first woman to build the first gold refinery in Nigeria; Tan Haur, an art program leader in Singapore; Yumiko Kayukawa, a Japanese artist based in Seattle Washington; Ade Adekola, a Lagos-based conceptual artist whose pieces emphasize on looking beyond normal sight; Arlene Wandera, a Kenyan visual artist based in London; Ervin Pope, award-winning music producer; Kiki James, NGO and education advocate; Jerlyn (Thomas) O’Donnell, product designer based in New York City; Anthony Armendariz, Head of Design at Funsize; Michel Rothschild, a Creative Director at Dieste, Inc; and Opeyemi Akinfe, the boss and co-founder at Moderncontempo. The reception of previous volumes, notably; Polaris (Collective’s first issue, April 2019), Voyager, Volume 2 (June 2019) and Vivencias, Volume 3 (September 2019) had mostly positive reviews. The anticipated release of Supernova puts out more inspiration on its release on December 6, 2019.
