CulturatiAcademy, a skill acquisition and youth empowerment arm of African culture and creative promoting brand, Culturati has commenced registration for intakes for the 2022 vocational year.

The session set to run from August to September this year will be offering modelling, Fashion Designing, Make-up, Arts & Crafts, Catering & Mixology, Tourism, Furniture/Upholstery, Leather Works, Hair Styling, and content Creation as well as liberal and technical courses including; SoftwareEngineering, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Custom web development, Product Management, and Product Design (UI/UX) at the Culturati TechAcademy.

Speaking about the essence and impact of the academy established in 2020, the founder of the academy, Idris Aregbe said; “The creative industry can conveniently accommodate African youths, endowed with a plethora of creative talents. The gap in the strategic needs of African countries can be bridged by a well-articulated direction of the creative industry, where the energy of youths can be guided to meaningfully and sustainably contribute to socio-economic fortunes. This is the rationale behind the establishment of the academy.”

Aregbesaid the rationale behind Culturati Academy is essentially on exploring how the strong potentials of African youths can be modulated and accelerated on the back of culture towards socio-economic development.

“The period of time youths waste before and even after the university, usually exploited by vices, could be eliminated by the concerted effort at strategically positioning the creative industry to absorb their creative energy.

“While it takes at least 4 years to get a university degree, and possibly more years to get a job, young people could become vibrant economic agents in less than 1year, positively contributing to the economy with a dynamic creative industry. With economic power, they can afford their school fees and study much more conveniently. The positive ripple effects are just tremendous.” Aregbe averred.

Culturatiis Africa’s largest cultural fusion and for 16 years has dedicatedly remained a reliable platform providing opportunities for Africans and people of varying backgrounds to come together in a deliberate effort to engender collaborative alliances and partnerships that will reward cultural excellence, empower cultural buffs and youths with technical skills, create business opportunities for Africans to leverage on, while celebrating the continent’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.

Beginning this year, in taking the academy a notch higher, Aregbe and his associates will introduce an investment scheme for creative, dedicated, and focused graduates ready to ignite their entrepreneurial journey.

This scheme has been set to finance graduates of the academy to begin their trade, with the ultimate goal to identify, develop and equip creative talents amongst youths to make them productive economic agents and financially independent, thus helping them contribute meaningfully to the economic development of theircommunities.
