This workshop aims to bring together a range of stakeholders and intermediaries working towards supporting the development of creative and cultural industries (CCIs) in Nairobi, Kenya. Creative intermediaries include profit and non -profit organisations that facilitate a range of opportunities for creative individuals and companies such as: training and skills, space and business planning, access to finance and financial advice, access to markets, internationalisation and other opportunities.
The Long-term objectives of this forum to support creative intermediaries and facilitate communication and initiative across organizations, creating a local (and potentially national) network that facilitates sharing of information for the benefit of creative and cultural industries and individuals. The organizers hope to facilitate this further through the creation of an application or web platform, after feedback from the participants of the forum
This forum tries to involve as many creative intermediaries and stakeholders as much as possible, to have a broad representation of organizations, public bodies, higher education institutions as well as private and non-profit organizations. This workshop aims to be open and inclusive even though there is a limited number of places to enable discussion and knowledge sharing.
The workshop is going to be audio-recorded in order to use the knowledge generated for academic research and papers. All information will be anonymized when transcribed and will not be shared with third-parties. Blogs and reports are going to be published and will be shared with all. Those invited will be sent detailed information about the ethical guidelines followed by King’s College London.
