The Pride Lagos Creative Enterprise Week (PLCEW) which seeks to chart pathways to make creativity pay has assembled a stellar lineup of facilitators for its 2021 edition “Creativity Is Big Business”. The event is scheduled to hold November 8–13, 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. “The Pride Lagos Creative Enterprise Week is targeted at turning creative talents into lasting businesses to uplift the youths of the country.”
PLCEW is a weeklong event of seminars, master classes, workshops and other activities to empower young creatives and help them to unleash their potential.
