The N-Creative programme was announced in October 2018.
The N-Power Creative programme will train and develop 5,000 young creative talents. The strategy is to put Nigeria’s creative industry on the global radar as exporters of world-class services and content. Training will last 3 months, made up of 1-month in-class and a 2-month hands-on group project, across selected Nigerian cities. The participants will be trained and certified in one of the following courses:
Animation | Graphic Design | Post-production | Script Writing
At the end of the training, some participants will get local and international internship opportunities while others will be linked to job and market opportunities. In addition, all participants will receive computing devices that will ensure that they master their skills during and after the training.
