Members of the WUTW team had the opportunity to spend a month in October in Lagos, Nigeria teaching an immersive PR & Digital Marketing course at Del-York Creative Academy, Africa’s foremost capacity building institution for film, media, animation, technology, and marketing communications industry. The film and media school is pioneering the growth of the African Creative Industry through its intensive hands-on training programs where Nigerian film students get an opportunity to be mentored by Hollywood professionals.
In the words of our founder Bijan & our creative director Aniko, “We are very grateful for everyone from @delyorkcreativeacademy who made this trip possible, our fellow instructors (amazing Hollywood film industry pros), and our extraordinary students who co-created this life-changing experience with us.”
DCA’s founder Linus Idahosa, international businessman & social entrepreneur is a major driver of these positive changes, and is a visionary thought-leader responsible for cultivating talents & a thriving film industry in Lagos. We are very excited to see the blossoming of Lagos’ creative renaissance (and Nigeria as a whole) throughout the upcoming years. Learn more about DCA here.
