The Pride Lagos Creative Enterprise Week (PLCEW) seeks to address the issue of youth unemployment and poverty among creatives through training to further hone creative skills and foster entrepreneurship.
Tertiary education is not always possible for many Nigerian youths due to financial circumstances. On the other hand, many graduates also face serious difficulties finding jobs. The PLCEW will proffer solutions on how unemployed creatives can upskill and how to market themselves successfully.
During the course of the PLCEW, creatives will garner knowledge that can help them find work within local and international companies, thrive as self-employed freelancers, or set up and run their own businesses. They will also gain insights on how their skills can be applied to a multitude of industries. It is the expectation that the PLCEW will open doors to creatives.
The PLCW organising committee are at the early stages of planning the event and would like individuals, corporations, NGOs, government agencies, and foreign embassies who can sponsor the PLWC or facilitate workshops, seminars, and masterclasses to get in touch through their email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
