ORGANIZERS of Africa Creative Summit have announced details of its upcoming event in Nigeria which will bring top players in the creative industry across the continent and beyond together to share expertise and do business.
Currently organized in partnership with the Directors Guild of Nigeria, DGN, the Kaduna State Government and CAVS, the creative summit is expected to hold in three cities of Lagos, Kaduna and Asaba, in April, 2018.
Addressing the press about the upcoming event, in Lagos,during the week, the convener, Brainz, representing Brainz & Lloyds International,a Dublin-based TV and Film Consortium, said the objective of the event is to enhance cooperation between foreign technical experts and home grown Nigerian creative individuals/professionals. This session is unprecedented and will be the first creative forum of its kind in the country.
According to her, the summit intends to foster strategic alliances and solid business partnerships between relevant businesses from around the globe.
“We will focus on developing economic and technical creative side of entertainment relationships within industry. We will also be addressing this constraint by having workshops and speakers which focuses on the technicalities of Film, Television, Audiovisual, Music, Radio, Entertainment Law and Creative investment.”
“Workshops and speakers will be delivered by top players in this field who will be able to provide practical knowledge and skills as well as valuable insights into how we can go about ensuring improvements in the Nigerian Creative industry,” she explained.
Speaking further, Brainz said while the Nigerian film industry is steadily growing, there are still a lot of areas, talents and doors to be unlocked.
One of the main constraints, she pointed out is the quality of technical and creative training in the industry. This, she said has resulted in a lack of depth and breadth which is essential to capitalize on continental and global opportunities.
