A Creative Economy Policy and Strategy Masterclass Programme for Nigeria

Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy (TFCC) has designed a Policy and Strategy Master Class for leading policy-makers and investors in Nigeria. In partnerhip with the British Council and Enterprise Creative, TFCC is staging a 3-day-long master class in Lagos, followed by a 5-day master class and study visit to London and Bristol in the UK.

This programme of activities is designed to raise awareness of the creative economy as a policy area for Nigeria - a country bursting with talent and accelerating toward a more dynamic and mixed economy. It is also positioned to introduce the practical tools, case studies and models relevant to Nigeria - drawing on our experience working in over 40 countries internationally.

The programme is led by Dr Tom Fleming, working alongside Enterprise Creative and the British Council to generate genuine appetite, knowledge and partnership which will benefit the Nigerian creative economy at federal and state level.
