Your Circle: A creative movement, launching
“Your Circle” is a Lunch Day Party, curated by Those Guys, a Social Marketing Agency based in Gaborone, Botswana. This particular Lunch Day Party seeks to shake things up and provide a day time local restaurant experience to cater especially for the urban youth (Age group – from 20years till the early 40s). It is set to bring together the best in local talent, including all the way from chefs, photographers, poets, sound engineers, mixologists, videographers, and more. The main here is to create a platform for underground talent to be appreciated, most of our suppliers are first-timers, women, and the LGBTQ community. A platform, which can pay all the creatives involved what they deserve and support them, with our skills of branding, and enable them to stay relevant on their digital platforms. As per the norm with our brand, Those Guys, all that un-compromised focus will be on our customers’ experience with Your Circle. The meticulous attention to décor and careful curated music will also serve to carry the vibrant energy of this event.
- Showcase great local talent; black talent, especially from marginalized societal groups.
- Create a well-coordinated social media campaign on Your Circle’s social media platforms, to ensure that all our partners and great talent at Your Circle get great mileage (brand awareness) from this.
- To enable local restaurants to make more income to support their business, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic.
