Aimed at empowering creative communities across Nigeria, Facebook and Afrinolly today announced the start of its new ‘Facebook for Creators’ training programme – designed to equip the next generation of content creators with the skills to thrive in a digital world.

Focused on creative entrepreneurs and journalism students, the multi-city creative training also aims to help artists, photographers, designers, filmmakers and other creatives leverage digital tools to gain more visibility around their work, engage with and grow their audiences.

Sherry Dzinoreva, Policy Programs Manager, EMEA at Facebook said, “We know that the future of Africa is young, and that the creative community here in Nigeria is amongst the most exciting and very best in the world. Our partnership with Afrinolly and the curation of this bespoke training reinforces our commitment to the continent, and Nigeria. Our goal is to continue to support and invest in young and diverse creative talent, and this is just another step.”
