The Pride Lagos Creative Enterprise Week, which seeks to chart pathways to make creativity pay, has assembled a stellar lineup of facilitators for its 2021 edition, themed: “Creativity Is Big Business.”
The event is scheduled to hold from November 8 to 13, 2021 at Alumni Hall, Yaba College of Technology, Lagos.
“As youths of Nigeria, we are currently faced with unprecedented unemployment and underemployment – these are hampering our pursuit of rewarding and fulfilling lives,” said Chukwuemeka Anyiam-Osigwe, Coordinator PLCEW.
Anyiam-Osigwe added: “The Pride Lagos Creative Enterprise Week is targeted at turning creative talents into lasting businesses to uplift the youths of the country.”
