We are hosting a one-day seminar ‘Exploring the Creative Economy in Africa’ taking place here at King’s on the 27th of June. You are invited.

The event is organised by CMCI’s Dr Roberta Comunian in collaboration with Ejemen Ojeabulu (African University of Creative Arts) and Sam Jones (Sound Thread) with the support of King’s Worldwide Partnership Fund, The Faculty of Arts & Humanities and us at the Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries.

The organisers say that in recent years there has been a growing interest on the role of the cultural and creative industries in developing economies, not only in reference to their economic contribution but also in connection with social change and cultural engagement. Our event brings together academics, practitioners and policy makers.

The full programme for the event is available here.  For more information, go to: http://creativeafricaseminar.weebly.com and to register, go to: http://estore.kcl.ac.uk/browse/extra_info.asp?compid=1&modid=2&deptid=13&catid=125&prodid=651 The cost of registration is £5 and this will help cover catering costs (including two coffee breaks, lunch and an evening reception) for participants.
