Go Sheng participates at the Creative Economy Conference 2015

The creative economy, merging creativity, technology and economy provides opportunities for youth's natural creative curiosity and inventiveness. Already, Kenya is experiencing this potential as seen in the animation, software development, music, film that Kenyan youth are beginning to successfully engage in. Access, therefore, for a larger percentage of youth to participate in the creative economy may well contribute to the livelihood opportunities much needed by Kenya's youth.

The coming together of the Kenya Creative Economy Working Group under the auspices of the Ford Foundation was an expression of the need for knowledge generation and sharing to develop a sustainable framework that would contribute in guiding the creative sector. The Creative Economy Working Group entered the discourse in 2013, with the aim of contributing to a policy framework for Kenyan creative industries, as well as related, diverse activities that help aggregate and focus the picture of Kenya creative economy as it evolves. The overall goal of the Working Group is to see Kenya's creative economy integrated in the national development agenda and supported and developed consistently and strategically by stakeholders at all levels of government -national and county.

Go Sheng Services was invited to participate in the Conference held from 26th to 28th February 2015. See the conference program and related materials here.
