Creative Communities

Creative energy keeps the world turning! We get buzzed about supporting up-and-coming and established talent in music, art and design.

Read on to learn more about our creative communities!

Music feeds the soul!

Food and music are the perfect pair! That’s why we’ve always been big supporters of up-and-coming and established creatives and musicians and love fueling the Aussie music industry (literally). For years we’ve fed touring local and international artists and bands, so they can focus on their art full time, and not worry about where their next feed is coming from.

We’re also really committed to boosting the next gen of Aussie talent, so we bring emerging and established artists together for our annual local and global Music Exchange workshops (MX), which give early-career creatives the skills they need to embark on a full-time music career.

Restaurant or gallery?

Did you know Nando’s has the largest collection of original Southern African art in the world? That’s right! We’ve got over 21,000 pieces carefully curated and displayed on restaurant walls and menus!

Our Art program supports both emerging and established Southern African artists, so they can focus on their art full-time. All art is chosen specifically for each restaurant and includes lots of different mediums!

Different by design!

By now you might have realised we like to do things a little differently, which is why all our restaurants are uniquely designed!

Everything you see has been designed or hand-picked to suit the space, including pieces from Southern African designers like light fixtures, tables and chairs, condiment stations and tile and pattern designs. How cool is that!
