The Creatives Festival— The biggest event for Creatives in Nigeria

More than ever before, people are embracing career paths in the creative space. Gone are the days where creatives were shunned or considered unserious in society. Now, creatives are boosting the economy across different industries.

While the creative industry is contributing immensely to the economy, especially the entertainment and music industry, the knowledge gap is becoming more obvious. This is due to the low barrier of entry and lack of understanding of the creative industry and the business side to it. Creatives have been struggling with lack of investments to advance TV in the industry, intellectual property theft, among other challenges.

This knowledge gap has to be catered to as many creatives do not have an educational background in media or technology or business. Creatives are mostly individuals trying to get by as business entities. This is one of the issues to be addressed at the Creatives Festival organized by The Nest Innovation Park.
