British Council, First Bank launch GenTalks Creative

British CouncilBritish Council has partnered with First Bank of Nigeria Limited to launch GenTalks Creative, in association with Generational Voices (GenVoices) to stimulate youth participation in the articulation of practical growth strategies for Nigeria’s creative industries using digital platforms.

The programme aims to gather ideas on sector development strategies and reinforce young people’s capacity to participate and lead policy and sector development. This project will stimulate solution focused debate and discourse based on already articulated growth barriers to the Nigerian Creative Industries.

Tagged  “GenTalks Creative: Growth Strategies for the Nigerian Creative Economy”, the project will crowd source growth ideas online and curate these into a series of face-to-face events with participation from key Nigerian Creative Industries stakeholders and young people interested in the growth of this sector. The project output will be a green paper which will map out recommendations for the growth of the sector in Nigeria. The produced green paper will be used to advocate a more supportive policy framework for the sector in Nigeria.

You can join the conversation to share ideas on the growth and sustenance of the industry by visiting the online platform, go to your sector of interest and share your views.
