A lot has been happening in Kenya’s Creative economy in the last few years and as we garner a name as well as positions ourselves in creative fields. We need to know as Kenyan Creatives – Where Are We going?

Is the Creative Industry in Kenya as fragmented as it looks? Where are the societies, associations and groups that can galvanise different sectors together? What are the common challenges we all face and how can we counter these? What Industry projects are there that we should know about and support? And finally with a new government coming in 2013 what do we need in terms of capacity, investment, resources and support to grow our creative economy locally and globally?

The organizers are super excited to hear about your projects, thoughts, concerns and solutions this Sunday. A brief summary on the Creative Scenerio will be presented by The Creativez to set the tone for the meetup.

This meet up is ideal for those in the following industries: digital animation (visual and sound effects),Broadcast (TV, radio and film), Visual arts , Digital media (mobile applications and internet), Publishing/Writing, Gaming, Performing arts and cultural expressions, Advertising, Architecture, Art and antiques markets, Crafts, Design, Designer fashion, Interactive leisure software and Music.
