To place great focus on and generate attention about the continent’s creative industries, not just as economic drivers but also to highlight the potential contribution of the Creative Industries to the eradication of poverty, democracy and human rights.
The Conference programme will broadly cover:
• Examining and re-defining the creative industries under African conditions and their relevance to African economic, social and political developments;
• Undertaking and sharing detailed, up-to-date research on each sector in the creative industries; and
• Discussing the creative industries and their relevance within the broader political and economic context. For example, the role of BRICS countries in Africa, and the impact of countries such as China on the creative industries.
This event will be of particular interest to creative practitioners, government bodies and policy makers, academics, researchers, entrepreneurs, journalists and many others.
