About this Event

The Creative Industry in Kenya has played a major role in economic development of cities i.e by creating job opportunities, encouraging urban regeneration and as a promoter of urban development as an essential component of broader development plans.

The role of creative industries ranges from urban regeneration; the integration of creativity in urban development projects; the current creative economy indicators; policies to address creative diversity and social inclusion issues within the communities; and the potential of creative projects for community empowerment and involvement.

The question is,‘How can we use creative industries for the economic regeneration of urban regions?’ This discussion will address this in threeways:

Examining the international debates about the effectiveness of creative projects as tools for urban development;

Deliberating on the factors that cause city authorities to put more importance on policies guiding creative industries;

Describing the evolution of creative industries in Kenya.
