Del-York Creative Academy to commence training for 2021
As Nigeria’s creative industry gears towards an impressive future of dynamic talents and global recognition, there are very few institutions in the continent that are powering the transformational change that will most likely expand the industry to become one of the strongest sectors in the continent and across the world. One of such institutions is the highly reputable Del-York Creative Academy, renowned as one of the foremost capacity building institutions in Africa. In positioning itself as a school of choice among creatives, it is once again set to chart a new trajectory for the future of creative skills learning across the continent.
After a successful training program in 2019 that saw the grooming of rising storytellers across Africa and the grounding of the on-campus program in 2020 due to the global pandemic that necessitated the innovative route of creating an online learning platform. The academy surpassed its milestone by successfully training thousands more creatives from the comfort of their homes – at a goal.
With a promise for better and more robust training and innovative learning experience, Del-York Creative Academy has announced the commencement of its one-month intensive on-campus and virtual training program for 2021 which is scheduled for the later part of the year.
The nation is therefore set to witness a new crop of talented creatives from across Africa and in the diaspora, as they converge in Lagos, Nigeria to be trained by the academy’s faculty of internationally renowned instructors, which are being flown in from Los Angeles, United States, to provide uniquely skilled insight and practices in the professional arts industry. The courses of focus in the program includes: Acting for Film; Filmmaking; Cinematography & Set Lighting; Post Production, Fashion Arts & Crafts; Digital Marketing and Content Creation; as well as Producing & The Business of Film.
With more than a decade of changing the narrative of over 5,000 young and dynamic talents who are currently leading the next league of African storytellers, Del-York Creative Academy seeks to bridge the gap, from the academia to private sector as well as governments for entertainment and creativity in Africa. With its state-of-the-art learning suites, the academy has proven beyond doubt that its model will bring about a new age of African storytelling and the rise of storytellers who will take the African narrative to new and greater heights.
