As an anchor tenant of the innovative suburb, the team at The Colombo wanted to do
something to support Sydenham in the wake of the Covid-19 lockdown. "The campaign's
purpose is to form an umbrella for our business Community post Covid. We want to make
people feel connected to each other again. Sydenham is a cool area, it’s edgy, it’s downtown
and it hosts a number of independent businesses that can't compete with the multinational leases in the city.
There is soul and substance to the place; it's a community of local people, businesses and
families." Says Caroline Cooper-Dixon from The Colombo.
Featuring a number of popular venues, Soul Traders collaborates with; Hello Sunday, Curiosity Gin Distillery, Junk & disorderly, The Fermentist, Form Gallery and The Cake Eating Company to name a few. The campaign will also draw attention to the many independent, locally owned and operated businesses within The Colombo.
Soul Traders will be published across their social media and digital platforms, local press and
present in print throughout The Colombo.
