Creative Economy in Sub Saharan Africa

Through our creative economy work in Sub Saharan Africa we support young people to develop sustainable livelihoods in the creative and cultural industries.

Maganga Mwagogo

Fashion DNA, our Creative Enterprise programme taking place in Sudan

In collaboration with the SSA Arts team we respond to the needs of creatives and communities with opportunities to develop artistic, technical and enterprise skills through collaboration and exchange. Working with partners, we gather and share insight of the sector, and develop resources for young creative professionals.

Our programmes are delivered by partners who have a rich understanding of their creative communities, who stimulate new ways of connecting, sharing skills and knowledge between creatives in Sub Saharan Africa and the UK.
