Arterial Network Kenya Catchup on Grants & Funds in the Creative Industry, Jun. 7 2014 @ Kuona Trust
While the creative industry is only just getting together and interacting across sectors a key cross-cutting challenge is project financing. Aside from personal savings and mainstream channels, creative setups in Kenya also opt for donor/development support and capacity building.
This month’s Catchup being held on Saturday 7th June, is at Kuona Trust Art Centre, off Dennis Pritt Rd, and is from 2pm-5pm and explores alternative growth opportunities for creative entrepreneurs.
Join us and our panel with Hivos, Ford Foundation, Keroche Foundation and others in sharing in these learnings this Saturday afternoon
